“Meeting Memories”: starting of the project

Sept. 1, 2020

In September 2020, the program "Meeting Memories: learning from the past to confront dehumanization today" started. We are especially pleased that we managed to get the support of the "Europe for Citizens" program at time when the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War in the area of the then Kingdom of Yugoslavia is approaching. The activities will be an opportunity to raise public awareness but also to engage in confronting the distortion of historical facts about the suffering in concentration camps during World War II through public events, exhibitions and educational work.

Documenta – center for dealing with the past is the coordinator, and will implement the program with its international partners: Center for Informative Decontamination of Youth Banja Luka (BiH), Centre for Public History from Beograd (Serbia), Jasenovac Memorial Site (Croatia), Max Mannheimer Haus – Study Centre and International Youth Hostel from Dachau (Germany), Social Academy – Institute for Education, Research and Culture from Ljubljana (Slovenia), University of Udine (Italy). In the project will also be included associates from the institutions of the successors of the victims and anti-fascist organizations and other institutions.
