This three-day-long international forum provides an opportunity to commemorate forced labour in Europe during World War II. Through various forums such as public talks, workshops and excursions, we invite participants to exchange their views and share their experiences about the history of Nazi forced labour as well as to discuss the various ways Europe has commemorated that history. The event is interdisciplinary and addresses researchers—especially from history, cultural sciences and social sciences—experts on political-historical education and representatives of institutions concerned with commemorating Nazi forced labour. Young researchers are particularly welcome. An important aim of this conference is to offer networking opportunities and foster debate among many participants from all over Europe.
