The Exhibition Catalogue for the exhibition “Different wars: National School Textbooks on World War II” is now available online.
The catalogue does not only reproduce the exhibition, but gives additional information on the countries’ internal discussions and key aspects regarding WWII, on the curricula and the teaching methods.
Only by talking about the difficult or uncomfortable
topics, and by naming contemporary fears
based on past events, can new irritations, misunderstandings
and conflicts be avoided. Different
narratives and ‘sore spots’ of our neighbouring
countries, alongside concealed or reshaped
events of the war, should be made known and
be open for discussion - Kristina Smolijaninovaitė, Deputy Director CSF
