Meeting Memories: Learning from the Past to Confront Dehumanization Today
The project “Meeting Memories: Learning from the Past to Confront Dehumanization Today” aims to remind European citizens of the politics of dehumanization and scapegoating, happening in the 1930s and 1940s, and create awareness about similar patterns happening today. The project will be the opportunity to raise public awareness, make citizens more resilient and critical towards authoritarianism and populism and less prone to racism and radicalization, 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.
The project is coordinated by Documenta and organized with the collaboration of our international partners: Center for Informative Decontamination of Youth Banja Luka (BiH), Centre for Public History (Serbia), Jasenovac Memorial Site (Croatia), Max Mannheimer Haus (Germany), Socialna Akademija (Slovenia), University of Udine (Italy) and different associates from the institutions of the successors of the victims and anti-fascist organizations and others.
The project is co-funded by the Europe for Citizens Programme of the European Union.
