In cooperation with the Goethe Institute and the French Institute in Zagreb, Youth Initiative for Human Rights - Croatia (YIHR) organised in the town of Petrinja (central Croatia) a symposium "Remembrance of the Civil Victims of War". Petrinja, as the town that suffered during the 1990s war in Croatia, was chosen as the venue of the symposium - aiming to present memorialisation of civil victims of war practices in Germany, France and Croatia - with the wish to further discuss the initiative for opening a museum dedicated to the civil victims of war in the town.
After the keynote speakers presenting the organisers, the symposium featured two panels: Panel 1 Identification and representation in the memorialization process and Panel 2 The role of museums in historical, political and human rights education.
Memory Lab associates taking part in the symposium: Ivo Pejaković, Christopher Melka and Sven Milekić.
