6th International Symposium of European Institutions dealing with the 20th-century History
EUROPEAN CULTURE OF REMEMBRANCE
The conference will focus on the phenomenon of the involvement of states and ideologies in the widespread use of violence to enforce objectives. Within the ‘facts-and-memory’ approach, we would like to present the different experiences of violence within Central-Eastern and Western Europe, and ask what forms of violence are legitimate, as well as how are they are remembered, taught and exhibited in both parts of Europe. This relates not only to countries that have experienced totalitarian regimes and various types of dictatorship, but it is still an issue of great significance.
