ERINNERN focuses on the power of memory and remembering, the power which allows us to evaluate our past. History is one of the most discussed humanities and social sciences. It creates a kind of bridge between the past and the present, documenting what has passed and become part of primary humanity. Remembering our past, both individually and collectively, is critical in order to wisely assess our future direction. The history of World War II, the memory of which is still fresh and still strongly penetrat-ing relationships between people and states, is particularly important in the context of the project. Therefore, to remember is an important element in shaping reality. Behavior patterns are recorded in the past, it is the past that is the source of experience and valuable lessons from which humanity should draw conclusions so as not to once again make the same mis-takes. Memories are messages from the past that, if read properly, can become a powerful road map helping us navigate the future.
