The conference takes place in Brussels between 6 and 8 June. This year's theme: Violence in the 20th-century European history: commemorating, documenting, educating.
The event will focus on the phenomenon of the involvement of states and ideologies in the widespread use of violence to enforce their objectives.
Within the 'facts-and-memory' approach, we would like to present different experiences of violence within Central-Eastern and Western Europe, and ask how they are remembered, taught and exhibited in both parts of Europe.
