Edela Eesti Arenduskeskus is promoting a call for participants for a Seminar called “Active Remembrance of Nazism and Stalinism” which will take place in 18th until 23rd June 2012 in Budapest (Godollo), Hungary.
It was in Kistarcsa where the largest internment camp of Hungary was operated during the Stalinist era. Many people have spent short or long time – involuntarily. There is hardly anyone in Hungary, who has no connection to this infamous institution, through his or her relatives or friends. Local residents did not know too much about the world in the object surrounded by massive walls. Those who had some information did not dare to spread it. During those years everyone was intimidated
and threatened. It did not take too much to get involved…
In the frame of an international seminar we would like to pay tribute and commemorate the innocent people who were imprisoned here. As part of the program we intend to draw a documentary picture
about the inhuman period with the assistance of historians who are experts on this era. We will also invite elderly people to make the presentations more authentic by their own personal experiences.
Our foreign partners will talk about similar phenomena in their own countries. We will have a guided tour in the remaining part of the camp, and will also visit the House of Terror, and the memorial erected in the concentration camp of Recsk.
We will have a brief overview of the history of the European Union from the beginning until today, and as a contrast, we will highlight those values and possibilities that arose as a result of the cooperation
between the nations.
This Seminar will bring together 35 participants from all around Europe. The Seminar will be held in English. There are 4 vacancies available and participants should have minimum 18 years old.
The Youth in Action programme will cover 100% of the accommodation, food and activities and will reimburse the participants with 70% of the travel costs. There will be a participation fee of 30 Eur. per
