Involved with this project was Freie Ukraine Braunschweig e.V.
– a German-Ukrainian organisation located in Braunschweig and Hannover that runs projects to promote Ukrainian literature in Germany. It schedules book presentations, readings, discussions and publisher meetings, and also works to generate humanitarian assistance in the form of medical equipment supply to the hospital system of Zaporizhia, Ukraine.
Partnership was established in 2016, when Celan Centre was organising Serhiy Zhadan's tour that year. The association pitched in with the organisation of events in the German cities, and since then they have been working together with Celan Centre on other cultural activities abroad. In 2018 the director of Freie Ukraine Braunschweig e.V.
Marina Halovska attended the Meridian Czernowitz Festival, where the first large public discussion of "Paul Celan 100. Meridian of a German Master: Chernivtsi-Paris-Eternity" took place. The professional connections of the association led to the organization of another event in Hanover, expanding the reach of the project by adding yet another city with engaged audience.
