6th European Remembrance Symposium

The 6th symposium with the title "European Remembrance" is held in Brussels on 6-8th June 2017. The conference aims at describing the experiences of Central and Eastern European as well as Western European countries on in what ways violence can be legitimate and how that is remembered and taught in certain parts of Europe.

The moderator of the session of the first day was Réka Földváryné Kiss, vice person of the Committee of National Remembrance. The event is organised by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity every year in order to enhance and strengthen the cooperation between institutes that focus on the research of the 20th century as well as history education in different countries. The participants at the symposium discuss whether it is possible to have common European remembrance.

Some of the participants of this year's panel discussions were Professor Andrzej Nowak from the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Professor Jeffrey Olick from the University of Virginia, Professor Valerie Rosoux from the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium and Professor Michel Wieviorka from the House of the Human. Sciences Foundation (Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'homme).

The Committee of National Remembrance is one of the organisers of the event in Brussels.
