European Remembrance Symposium, Budapest 2016: Turbo Presentations
The event was organised by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity (www.enrs.eu). Attended by over 200 representatives from over 100 institutions dealing with the history of the 20th century, it was dedicated to the memory of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956.
The goal of European Remembrance Symposium is to exchange experiences and establish methods and forms of cooperation between institutions from different countries. Representatives of European historical institutions are invited to discuss the challenges facing Europe’s idea of culture of remembrance. The meetings are open to all professionals dealing with 20th-century European history.
One of the main aims of the Symposium “European Remembrance” is to strengthen international cooperation between different national and international institutions dealing with 20th century history in Europe. To facilitate this networking we have offered each interested institution a presentation window during the Turbo Presentations session that took place on 25th of May.
A series of European Remembrance symposiums was launched in September 2012 in Gdańsk. Subsequent editions took place in Berlin, Prague and Vienna.
