How has Europe changed in recent years? What can history teach us about Europe today – and what should Europe be like tomorrow? Here are some essays, interviews, and debates about current European opportunities and challenges.
TELL ME ABOUT EUROPE
Experiences of war, oppression and flight in Europe: In the project “Tell me about Europe” contemporary witnesses, born before 1945, tell about their lives and – and reflect critically on their history against the background of the European idea.
The project “Tell me about Europe” is based on the “European Archive of Voices” of the group “Arbeit an Europa.” Upon completion, the archive will include a number of interviews with European contemporary witnesses, born before 1945.
In May, Europeans will elect a new EU Parliament. A good reason to ask them: What does the EU mean to you? In your everyday life? What challenges is it facing? And what do you want from the EU?
Together rather than alone
What does the EU bring to our daily lives? In other words, what happens when a country no longer belongs to the EU? Answers from different perspectives – illustrated by illustrators from all over Europe.
