Research Society Burgenland / Burgenländische Forschungsgesellschaft (BFG), Austria. The Research Society Burgenland is a registered non-profit organization, founded in 1987 as an independent institute for research, science and education in the humanities and social sciences in the Austrian Federal Province of Burgenland. The Research Society participates in various programs of the European Union and organizes conferences and workshops. The outcomes of the work are published in monographs, collected volumes and the Research Society’s journal “bfg:studies”.

goals

The Research Society is an interface between research and its translation into education activities, such as active citizenship or lifelong learning. Due to the fact that the Austrian Province of Burgenland has common borders with Hungary, the Slovak Republic und Slovenia, special attention is paid to the role of European border regions in the process of European integration, especially since the fall of the “Iron Curtain”. Another key issue of its research and education work is the period of Nationalsocialism in Austria and the expulsion and deportation of the Jewish population (www.vertrieben.at).

The name of our community is „Salantų Švč. Mergelės Marijos Ėmimo į dangų parapija“ („Salantų St. Virgin Mary parish“). We seek for cooperation on behalf of Lithuanian church community, based in Salantai city, Lithuania. Our page is here: http://palangosparapija.lt/salantu-svc-mergeles-marijos-emimo-i-dangu-parapija We are a small community of ~2200 people, seeking to renew our historical bakery traditions in order to bring people together and renew pilgrimage tradition. Our community history began in the year 1640, and as an official church community we work since the year 1911. We know that in the past, our people used to bake black bread and other national dishes ('šakotis', special soups (borsch), ect) and making dishes together was one of the main things bringing people together. We are seeking to renew these old traditions and old bakery buildings, equipment and recipes. Also to have a place where children could learn our traditional food recipes and gather all together. For this purpose we will write projects for European Union strands. If you would like to cooperate and be our partner from abroad, regarding cooperation covering travelling to Lithuania and sharing bakery experience and histoical heritage,please let us know.

goals

1) Learning and educational activities in order to learn regional (Žemaitiški) authentic dishes and production, using old-fashioned and unique techniques, using guided tours for observing and learning, educational activities, public employment and education lecture during cooking synergies; 2) The historic Bread road trips, visits to historical places of Lithuania and partner countries; 3) The historical heritage dishes production and sale for non-profit-making purposes. Aims and objectives: Increased public interest in healthy eating and lifestyle, greater civic participation by engaging in project activities framework for volunteering, educational workshops, installed information about the historical, legal, human values. Target audience: 1) Persons who are interested in the historical, cultural and culinary heritage (Žemaitijos region in Lithuania), urban, religious communities, representatives of educational institutions; 2) Socially excluded groups (the disabled, children, the victims of the crisis in the family, having served the sentence convicts, ethnic minorities, etc.); 3) the general public (the project is open to all interested persons, both in Lithuania and other countries of the population). (provide a short description of project you are looking partners for: field of activities, aims and objectives, target audience, partners involved, etc.) We aim to cooperate with partners from various fields of activities: education, legal rights, history, food and beverage, religion, community based, public institutions and NGO’s. If a partner has experience in projects with food or historical heritage, we should consider as great advantage. We aim to have a real impact on civil society and we seek to have results of the project in the most effective way as possible. So we will be searching for ways how not to waist project money, also we expect the same attitude from partners. Unfortunately, we have very few opportunities to have financial impact on the project ourselves, so the main financial help we expect to get is from EU funding. If our partners have any ability to co-fund, we would be very happy, and if not – we will be looking for ways of cooperation with the financial material we have.

Non-profit Slovak Centre for Communication and Development (SCCD) was founded on 15 April 2005. It is focused on two areas of activities –on promotion and putting global education into practice and on realization of development assistance and cooperation in less developed countries. SCCD figures as publishing house, exhibitions organizer and provides expert consultative services. It operates the first public library in Slovakia oriented on global issues. SCCD is a member of European "EUSTORY" network. The main goal of the Slovak history competition "EUSTORY" is to stimulate young people in Slovakia to get critical and independent look at their country´s history. It encourages them to make their own researches and to transform the achieved results into their own historical conclusions. In addition, the history competition is an opportunity to test one´s own study and research capabilities, to know the country´s history more deeply, but also to meet other people devoted to history to share views and experiences with them. The history competition helps to establish an informal "national historical network" bringing together students, teachers and scientists.

Sofia Platform is a non-governmental organization based in Sofia, Bulgaria. Our mission is two-fold: to promote dealing with the communist past in Bulgaria using methods of historical dialogue and civic education, and to provide training, exchange of knowledge and experience on an international level among countries in transition to democracy in Europe and North Africa. Sofia Platform’s methodological approach encompasses research, publishing, advocacy, outreach, educational work and campaigns.

goals

The idea that authoritarianism is a phenomenon of the past is dangerous for the integrity and durability of democracies. Sofia Platform’s objective is therefore to address the problem of lack of knowledge and interest of citizens about the recent communist past while stressing democratic values such as the rule of law and the respect for human rights. We aim to raise awareness of citizen’s roles and rights in the democratic system to foster their engagement and active participation and to encourage critical thinking towards the functioning of democracy.

The purpose of the Berlin Wall Foundation is to document and provide information about the history of the Berlin Wall and the mass migration from the German Democratic Republic as a part and contributory factor of the German division and the East–West conflict. It also aims to preserve historical sites and authentic remains and to provide for a dignified commemoration of the victims of Communist tyranny. The foundation encompasses the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse and the Marienfelde Refugee Centre Memorial. Roughly four million people left East Germany for West Germany. Approximately 1,350,000 of these individuals passed through the Marienfelde Refugee Centre. Today an exhibition recalls the causes, development and consequences of the German-German history of flight and emigration. The Berlin Wall Memorial contains the last piece of Berlin Wall and is able to convey an impression of the border fortifications. The events that took place here and the other preserved historical remnants and traces of border obstacles on display make the history of the division comprehensible to visitors.

Stiftung Deutsches Historisches Museum

German Historical Museum (...)
German Historical Museum History is booming – the German Historical Museum has certainly experienced a surge in interest since its foundation, with numerous temporary exhibitions, an interest which has only increased since its permanent exhibition was opened in 2006. Germany’s two thousand year history, as chequered as it is dynamic, is placed in a European context in an exhibition entitled “German History in Pictures and Documents” and presented to the public in Berlin’s baroque Zeughaus, or former Arsenal. More than 8,000 exclusive exhibits from the German Historical Museums’ collections, whose historical testimonial value is utterly unique, are displayed over 8,000 square metres, presenting a lively, vivid tableau of bygone days. German history is thereby placed in an international context which takes account of both the diverse events demarcating political and historico-cultural exchange, in addition to its integration with neighbouring states’ cultural heritage. The permanent exhibition is supplemented by temporary special exhibitions housed in the modern exhibition building, which was designed by the Chinese-American architect I. M. Pei. The spacious new building, with a foyer constructed of glass and steel and a striking helical staircase, was opened in 2003, and can also be accessed via the inner courtyard of the Zeughaus. Significant events and formative facets of German history are displayed across four levels.

The idea for establishing the Stiftung Ettersberg traces back to the Spanish author Jorge Semprún, who passed away in 2011 and who, as a former Buchenwald prisoner, first, on the occasion of the award ceremony for the Peace Prize of the German Book Trade in 1994, encouraged making the Ettersberg, on which the concentration camp Buchenwald and afterwards the Soviet special camp no. 2 was erected, a fruitful benchmark for the Germans’ two-time experience of dictatorship from a European perspective and to serve the democratic development in Central and Eastern Europe and the European integration. In 2002, the Minister President of Thuringia at that time, Dr. Bernhard Vogel, set up the Stiftung Ettersberg based in Weimar as a foundation under civil law. At first, the foundation was dedicated to the comparative research of European dictatorships in the 20th century and their democratic transformation. It is intended to contribute to the historical reappraisal and comparative analysis of dictatorships of fascistic, National Socialist and communist provenance as well as authoritarian regimes, more clearly elaborate their domination mechanisms and their driving forces but also the meaning of opposition and resistance against authoritarian and totalitarian oppression and keep the memory of the victims of dictatorial power alive. Furthermore, it is intended to deal with the problems of the transition from dictatorship to democracy and the conditions for stability in a free democracy and therefore, contribute to teaching democracy. The Stiftung Ettersberg holds international symposia from a European-comparative perspective, academic expert conferences and colloquia, the results of which are published in the foundation’s own publication series and in a brochure series „Kompakt“. It organizes its own exhibitions and conducts an annual school competition on the subject: “Experience of dictatorship and democratic changes in Germany and Europe“. Moreover, since 2012 the foundation has been establishing the Gedenk- und Bildungsstätte (memorial and educational institution) Andreasstraße in Erfurt, in the building of the former remand centre of the secret police. This location stands for both the repression in the SED (Socialist Unity Party of Germany) dictatorship as well as for the liberation from the dictatorship because that is where the first occupation of an object belonging to the Ministry for State Security in the GDR took place on December 4, 1989. The commemoration of the victims of the terror regime is linked to an authentic place in the Gedenk- und Bildungsstätte Andreasstraße with the complex examination of the SED dictatorship and education in free democracy, which is imbedded in European comparative dictatorship research. This is intended to create a vivid and spirited place of coming to terms with the dictatorial past from a European-democratic perspective, which can provide generations to come with a necessary orientation. Today, the linking of historically comparative research to the reappraisal of the SED dictatorship at an authentic location and education in democracy is the trademark of the Stiftung Ettersberg, which thus realises a multidimensional concept of reappraisal, which is unique throughout Germany and Europe.;Prof. Dr.

The Emigration Museum in Gdynia is the only place in Poland, which will present the history of emigration from the Polish lands. It is also one of only a few institutions of this type in the world where this story can resound in such an adequate place – a unique building of the Maritime Station that served the purpose to handle migration waves for many years. The history of emigration is a very personal, deeply moving story - made up of millions of people’s fates. We would like to convey, as faithfully as possible, emotions felt by expatriates when they were taking a decision to emigrate, leave their family and friends, give up their style of life and homeland; to tell about their journey hardships, experiences of encounter with exotic, multi-cultural communities and building one’s identity on new lands. It will also be a story about the world of emigration business from the inside: transport routes, logistics companies, people living by organization of smuggling of migrants waves. Finally – about the port as a hub of the whole transport system and the conditions, in which our fellow countrymen travelled to another world. It is the story, which concerns all of us. The significance and scale of the phenomenon of emigration for our national identity is reflected by the fact that Poland is one of the global leaders as regards scattering of the national outside the state borders. Another goal of the Emigration Museum is to build a contemporary cultural institution, which would combine exhibition, artistic, popularizing and educational functions under one meaningful address – Gdynia, Polska street No 1. Through the profile of permanent and temporary exhibitions, an art house and drama the Museum will play a role of a center of cultural activities combining art with sciences. We want this emerging institution to become both an entertainment place and the center of cultural industry in a wide sense. By presenting the history of the Polish emigration we also undertake an attempt to create an archive of Polish expatriates – a computer data base of life stories of expatriate families. Under this project we will carry out such activities, as collection of documents, artefacts and relics, investigation of sources, audio-video notations, publications, scientific exchange. The future Museum counts on co-operation and assistance of all research centers dealing with the issues relating to emigration and the Polish community abroad.
