CNDS – Les 45 premières années d’un pionnier du social

[Karà éditions] Katja Rausch, 2012

The CNDS is Abrigado, better known as “Fixerstuff”, or “Vollekskichen” or “Nei Aarbecht”. The National Committee of Social Defense, is a non-profit association created in 1967 which celebrated its 45 years in 2012. This book traces the eventful history of a social pioneer.


The book “CNDS – The first 45 years of a social pioneer” deals with a hidden side of Luxembourg through the story of an atypical non-profit organization. It comprises 160 illustrated pages on pioneering events in the Luxembourg social sector: the opening of the first home for ex-convicts in the 1950s, the pioneer streetwork done for drug addicts and prostitutes in the 1980s or the reopening in 1982 of the popular cuisine.

 « Petit Manuel de l’émerveillement »

[Karà éditions] Katja Rausch, 2009

Why write a book on wondering? Simply because the business language and utilitarianism have taken over in daily life. And a something little like wondering seems hardly profitable.

This book aims all those who want to rediscover their lightness of a child, in a playful offbeat universe.
