The annual meeting of scholars, politicians and social activists from eight Central-East European countries associated with European Network Remembrance and Solidarity has ended in Bratislava. The purpose of that institution is to promote international dialogue and common memory round the history of the 20th century. ENRS activities intended to propagate the diverse experiences of European nations and countries reflect the principle of solidarity as the basic, common rule of thought and action.
The purpose of the international seminar is to present the Polish, Ukrainian and German perspectives of the highly dramatic and emotional developments that took place in Central and Eastern Europe during the first half of the 20th century: Holodomor (Famine Genocide) in Ukraine and World War II with particular focus on the Volhynia Massacre.
