It has entered the repertoire of Polish cultural memory\, becoming one of the most inclusive national motto es during the darkest periods of Polish history in the 19th and 20th centu ries.\nAspirations for independence and accompanying freedom slogans also played a similar role in the history of the countries of Europe (and beyon d) throughout the 20th century\, which was marked by two world wars\, vari ous civil wars\, Nazism and the Holocaust\, fascism\, communism as well as authoritarianism.\nWhat does freedom mean today and what did it mean thro ughout the historical period discussed above? How did both the struggle fo r freedom and its celebration become enshrined in the region’s cultural an d historical memory? How has freedom been commemorated in museum narrative s and how is it commemorated today?\nThese questions are among the key one s running through this year’s European Remembrance Symposium.\n\nThe goal of European Remembrance Symposium is to exchange experiences and establish methods and forms of cooperation between institutions from different coun tries. Representatives of European historical institutions are invited to discuss the challenges facing Europe’s idea of culture of remembrance.\n URL: LOCATION:hybrid ORGANIZER;CN=European Network Remembrance and Solidarity END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
