Life Festival Oswiecim is an idea of Darek Maciborek, a journalist of a broadcasting station - RMF FM, who was born, raised and has always lived in Oświęcim. Darek Maciborek intends to “break the spell” of his home town that is commonly associated solely with the Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum.
The main concept of the Festival is to build peaceful relations beyond cultural and state borders where there is no place for anti-Semitism, racism, and other forms of xenophobia. The message of a peace and tolerance comes from the town where during the Second World War (WWII) was the largest Nazi concentration and extermination camp - Auschwitz-Birkenau.
