The Russia n attack on Ukraine has challenged our certainty that we have learned the right lessons from the past.\n\nThe politics of memory of any given countr y is not always identical with the memory policy of civil society. Occasio nally even the discourse about a common European past that began at the tu rn of the millennium\, serving as the foundation of a European community a ble to act in unison\, seems to be called into question. Given such divers ity of experiences\, is a common memory possible at all? Can national inte rests and international solidarity be reconciled? And last but not least: what challenges do European practices of remembrance and historical educat ion face in the light of the migratory movements of recent years?\n\nThe B erlin event aims to showcase the diversity of perspectives that serve as a basis for discussing the current challenges for history teaching in publi c spaces and historical education. During the forum\, we wish to focus on a shared conversation about the past and its importance for seeking the tr uth\, peace\, democracy\, freedom and tolerance\, as well as for a remembr ance that respects differences\, looks for connections and strengthens und erstanding and solidarity in Europe.
