Power of Personal Stories in Confronting Oblivion

Combating Holocaust and other genocides’ denial

The project “Power of Personal Stories in Confronting Oblivion (PPSCO)” aims to strengthen the practices of remembrance of the Holocaust and other genocides committed during the Second World War, in the partner countries and by extension in other countries of the European Union. The year 2025 is particularly important for this topic, as it will be the 80-years anniversary of the end of WWII, liberation of different concentration camps and other locations (such as Auschwitz, Dachau, Jasenovac and Stara Gradiška), and the anniversary and liberation of many cities in Europe from Fascist and Nazi occupation.

The project focuses on combating Holocaust and other genocides’ denial, countering distortion, and trivialization of historical facts, by sharing accurate information, organizing public debates on the best practices of confronting distortion and creating new materials and methods based on personal stories and biographies of time-witnesses, victims, and survivors. The resulting research will also analyze and highlight resistance and organized opposition.
