10 years - Memory Lab - Online Forum, 16-18 September 2020

At the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Memory Lab in 2020, we organized this Forum as an opportunity to reflect and discuss some of the challenges we are facing in our dealing with the past-work in South Eastern Europe and other parts of Europe, especially in the educational field and around memory sites. Reflecting the participative and interactive approach of Memory Lab, the program of the Forum had been elaborated on the basis of proposals made by Memory Lab-members. Originally planned as a physical meeting in Sarajevo, the program finally took place in an online-format due to the ongoing pandemic.

The participants of the Forum were Memory Lab-associates and other interested persons, especially representatives of memorial centers, historical museums, NGOs and other organizations/ initiatives from South Eastern Europe and other parts of Europe, who are active in the field of dealing with difficult pasts (wars and dictatorships in Europe during the 20 th century) in a practical way, especially around memory sites and in the educational field.
