Wojciech Soczewica is the Chief Executive Officer of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Foundation. "My Memory of Us" integrates real stories from individuals into its fictional narrative. By including these stories, the game’s creators, Jablonski and Janczuk, gave players a more personal and emotional connection to the events of the Second World War and the Nazi invasion of Poland. Even Soczewica, who expressed some reservations about using video games to address past traumatic events, acknowledged the importance of personal stories in shaping our Collective Memory. By incorporating individual perspectives into its narrative, "My Memory of Us" highlights the importance of preserving and sharing these stories to enhance our collective historical memory.
