Growing up under Totalitarian Regimes / Growing up in Wartime
The project is developed through the partnership of four organizations from four countries affected in the 20th century by wars and / or totalitarian regimes: URBAN Association (Bosnia and Herzegovina) (lead partner), Civic Academy Foundation – Memorial to the Victims of Communism and to the Anticommunist Resistance (Romania), ATRIUM Association (Italy) and Post Bellum (Czech Republic).
The aim of the project is to stimulate the reflection of young people from the four countries – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Romania, Italy and Czech Republic – on how the totalitarian regimes in Europe and armed conflicts in Bosnia affected the way of life of children so as to better understand the brutality of those systems, to comprehend and appreciate the benefits and rights that are given by peaceful and democratic Europe, as well as to commemorate and pass on the stories of the victims of these crimes.
The project has been developed around two topics, which are strictly interconnected when it comes to the Memory and Historical changes in recent Europe’s history: CHILDHOOD under totalitarian regimes/war and EVERYDAY LIFE in totalitarian regimes and societies affected by civil war.
Both in totalitarian regimes and in societies affected by armed conflicts, the CHILDREN are the most vulnerable part of population.
