Information Portal to European Sites of Remembrance

The Information Portal to European Sites of Remembrance, located in the spaciously designed exit foyer of the Information Centre, provides visitors with an in-depth look at the European remembrance landscape.

With the help of historical and especially present-day photos, the »Portal« presents information on over 550 memorial sites, museums and monuments in 35 countries. In addition, the web-based portal contains background information on the respective countries – their history during World War II and the cultures of memory which came about in the postwar period. This makes the Information Portal a unique project in Europe, as it not only pinpoints the sites, but also describes the historical context and diverse forms of commemoration.

Due to many requests, the »Information Portal to European Sites of Remembrance« is also accessible online since summer 2011. The Information Portal can be viewed here: www.memorialmuseums.org
