Faces of Resistance and Opposition to Oppression in 20th Century in
Europe (2015. – 2017.)
Project deals with history of resistance to various totalitarian regimes with special focus on the consequences of World War II on socialist Yugoslavia. According to the resistance to totalitarian regimes, based on responsibility and solidarity ("Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity.” The Schuman Declaration, May 9th 1950), as the brightest points in European history, the overall objective of this project is to develop and to strengthen social and individual processes of dealing with the past in order to contribute in building of sustainable peace.
Specific objectives of the project:
1. Raising awareness on importance of resisting dictatorships in the past and historical significance of different resistance movements to the oppressive regimes, as motivation for young and general public for working on social change nowadays;
2. Affirming approaches based on multiperspectivity through the different narratives and creation of public space in which different narratives will be able to co-exist without bringing into question and without diminishing anyone's suffering or tragedy;
3. Enhancing institutional/official support for attempts and activities related to practices of remembering and commemorating certain events from the past.
