1 September 1939 is one of the most tragic dates in all of our history. That date is recorded in history books as the beginning of a hell on earth that men created for their fellow men. Mass executions, concentration camps, exterminations of people – a vast ocean of blood, pain, and tears. Today we mark the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of WWII.
During the 'Freedom Express' Study Trip participants will write their blog.
On the 75th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War, European Network Remembrance and Solidarity announces a television premiere of a documentary film ‘Annihilated Towns. Between Wieluń and Złoczew.’ The town of Wieluń was bombarded by the Luftwaffe in what is considered the first terror bombing of the Second World War.
‘Freedom Express’ is the campaign organised by European Network Remembrance and Solidarity. 20 young historians, journalists and artists will travel through European countries following the footsteps of 1989. Everyone will have a chance to follow this journey on the internet.
European Network Remembrance and Solidarity has launched a unique project in order to foster cooperation of research centers, NGOs, museums, galleries and memorials dedicated to the previous century.
The special issue of Remembrance and Solidarity. Studies in 20th Century European History has just been published online. This issue is entirely devoted to the changes of 1989 and their legacy.
