A meeting of organisers of the Polish-German-French project „Remembering together - for creating future" took place in Göttingen on 13-16 December. The project is a tri-national exchange between Poland, France and Germany, which will focus on historical education. This initiative is the result of cooperation between the Friedland Museum, the International Federation in Göttingen, the Camp des Milles Foundation and the Krzyżowa Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe.
Ten participants from each of the three countries will meet three times in 2022 and will work together on the central theme of the project „Remembering together - for creating future". The individual meetings will focus on: History and its impact on memory at the local level, as well as the migrations and escapes that have taken place in Europe in the last century up to the present day. These themes are reflected in the activities of the memorial sites in Krzyżowa, Friedland and Les Milles. The aim of the project is to analyse history together from many perspectives and to derive actions for the future from this.
On 15-19 January, the first part of the French-Polish-German youth exchange on history and migration took place as part of the project 'Remembering together - for creating future'. This project takes the form of a tri-national exchange between Poland, France and Germany, whose main theme is historical education.
Due to the current pandemic situation, this phase of the exchange unfortunately had to take place online, but with different methods such as working with biographies from the museum Friedland as well as its history, language animation, energizer, joint virtual city tours and cooking, a pleasant atmosphere for getting to know each other and discussion could be created.
