Digital platform “Wer ist Walter? 100 stories about resistance in Europe during World War II”

The digital platform “Wer ist Walter?” gathers 100 stories about resistance against Nazism, fascism, occupation and collaboration in Europe during World War II. The focus is on 4 countries that represent different regions and historical and political contexts within Europe: France as occupied and collaborating country in western Europe, Germany as the country that attacked and occupied most of Europe, within which resistance activities also developed, and Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia in southeastern Europe, as parts of the Yugoslav space and more specifically of the collaborating Independent State of Croatia between 1941 and 1945.

The focus on the Yugoslav space is especially important to us, because the resistance was here particularly strong and because the (post-)Yugoslav space is often forgotten or neglected in discussions about European history and memories.

PROJECT PARTNERS

The platform “Wer ist Walter?” was created in the frame of the international project “Wer ist Walter? Resistance against Nazism in Europe” by crossborder factory, History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, CIFE – Centre international de formation européenne, and Jasenovac Memorial Site.
