Welcome to this blog devoted to the life and doing of Hans Paasche. You can learn more about Hans Paasche in the “About Hans Paasche” section and get inspired by projects featured in the “Projects” section.
This webproject started 2005 in Toronto (Canada) as an initiative of Gottfried Paasche and Kamil Kolata. It was inspired by the collaboration of the “Jugendburg Ludwigstein” in Hessen (Germany) and the Highschool “Gimnazjum im. Polskich Noblistów” in Krzyż (Poland), but also by the efforts of Helga Paasche to preserve her fathers legacy and Werner Lange’s and Jerzy Giergielewicz’s writings on Hans Paasche.
The inspiring life and doings of Hans Paasche are the driving force behind this project itself. Hans Paasche’s fate reminds us of the urgence of independent thinking and action. His tragic death sounds a note of caution challenging us as individuals and our societies.
This webproject follows 5 objecitves:
- Inform about the life and doings of Hans Paasche.
- Raise awareness for our capacity to change ourselves and our world.
- Promote ideals/values Hans Paasche was standing up for.
- Learn from the shortcomings of both Hans Paasche and his society.
- Inspire Action.
