The project, implemented in 2013, was designed to promote interaction between 120 former prisoners of the Nazi concentration camp living in Saint Petereburg and the volunteer group composed of both young and old persons. Volunteers conducted a series of activities with war veterans to provide psychological counseling (e.g. relationships with family, conflict, positive attitude), economic consultation (e.g. pensions and benefits), health check-up, and other social activities (e.g. drinking tea, watching movies, discussions, etc).
