01 Apr HISTOIRE POUR LA LIBERTÉ
After the successful realization of the project Who started all this? – Historians against revisionism which gathered some of the most prominent historians of the post-Yugoslav region with the intention to actively fight against revisionist tendencies in regional historiographies, and whose main result is the Declaration Defend History, Association KROKODIL continues the discussion on the importance of multiperspective historiographies and participatory cultures of remembrance through the project Histoire pour la Liberté.
The activities of the project will take place during 2021 through conferences, round tables and lectures in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia and Germany. The main goal of this project is to introduce the experiences of the European Union, primarily with the reconciliation of conflicting historical narratives, but also with shared history and common European values, to the citizens.
By marking events in recent European history, such as the reunification of Germany and the democratic transition of Central and Eastern Europe, but also by correlating them to the breakup of the SFRY, this project aims to stimulate debate and reflection on a common culture of remembrance, peace and tolerance, and exchange of experiences and perspectives, in order to further emphasize the dynamic character of European memory.
The project Histoire pour la Liberté is funded by the Europe for Citizens program of the European Commission, and is implemented in cooperation with the Association for Modern History (BiH), the Cliofest Association (Croatia) and Humboldt University (Germany).
