The House of European History is a place to debate, question and reflect on Europe’s history. In September 2 events will take place in the museum.

 

Young European Perspectives on War and Peace – Tuesday 18 September 2018 at 18:00

17 young people from around Europe are exhibiting absence in the museum by bringing together objects referring to their personal and collective stories related to war and peace in Europe.

Reflecting on the idea of war as a producer of absence and loss, they have developed a display arranged by topics of loss, pain, memory and hope.

The project is the result of a cross-cultural dialogue in a history lab, which took place in the city of Osnabrück (Germany) as part of the European Year of Culture Heritage.

Unheard Traces is open from 18 September – 14 October
