What is it?
It’s a platform for organizations, projects and initiatives using digital media and innovative IT solutions for analyzing historical events, conducting research, visualizing and representing data related to the past.
It will be of use to historians, journalists, NGO representatives, history teachers, IT experts, designers and project managers, interested in developing a culture of remembrance in Europe, especially about World War Two events.
How does it work?
A short description about the platform is available here.
The Digital History Network encourages you to join the platform, as we are set to accumulate the best practices and success cases of digital history projects in one place. Apart from adding your organisation and projects, you can also post announcements of events and educational opportunities.

The Europeans For Peace is happy to announce that the 2nd EUROPEANS FOR PEACE youth conference will be under the claim The Good Human or the Human Good – Footprints of Modern Slavery. After last years‘ theme „Right here, right now: Human rights“ we want to gain a deeper insight on Article 4 of the European Convention on Human Rights: „No one shall be held in slavery or servitude.“
This Article explicitly declares the prohibition of slavery and forced labor. This makes slavery officially illegal, but there are still numerous people worldwide living under conditions where they are being forced to work, facing threats and violence against them or their families. This youth conference will focus on this human rights violation, providing an overview not only of the history of the slavery and our colonial backpack but also of the current global situation.
What is our responsibility as active Europeans and global citizens? During the EUROPEANS FOR PEACE with workshops and discussions held by experts who champion human rights, we want to develop strategies for sustainable action and searching for concepts for a society where everyone is treated fairly and equally.
The event is organized jointly by the wannseeFORUM and the EVZ Foundation. Register now under www.youforpeace.org!
