Join the online event on October 1, 2021, 11.00am to 12.45pm, as we discuss the future of digital memory culture in Poland and Germany.

This event marks the conclusion of the current term of the digital // memory funding program. To celebrate, seven project teams will be present, who have spent a year working on different digital formats for historical-civic education in Poland and Germany.
