We have started our follow-up project “Bridges of Remembrance”. There will be an exhibition on our media website and offline in Berlin beginning 1st of December 2023 until 13th of January 2024. Also we will have a study trip to Georgia beginning of October within the project.
Bridges of Remembrance
All information on our project on transnational remembrance work you can find at our website: https://cultures-of-remembrance.com.
The general goal of the project is to critically examine how World War II, National Socialism, and the fight against it are remembered in different regions and different groups. Due to the current war in Ukraine, we are also investigating connections between the current war and historical events in the context of World War II. The project engages in conversations while traveling and learning about Georgia’s history, especially the history of the 20th century, focusing on what we can learn from history and its relevance to our lives today and today’s political developments.
The project is funded by
