Final Training of Silencing Citizens through Censorship-project in Skopje, Macedonia
December 1, 2016 - December 4, 2016
The Silencing Citizens Through Censorship-project involves a transnational group of history and citizenship educators from EuroClio’s member Associations in France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Macedonia, Poland, and Spain in the development and implementation of students-driven projects on censorship in Europe’s 20th century dictatorial and totalitarian regimes. The focus will be on the history of Franco’s Spain (1936 – 1975), Vichy France (1940 – 1945), Nazi Germany (1933-1945), Mussolini’s Italy (1922 – 1943), the post-1945 Hungarian ( – 1990) and Polish Republics (1944 – 1989) and the Republic of Macedonia as part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia under Tito (1945 – 1980). During the project the team members will develop engaging and thought-provoking resources on striking historical examples of censorship with their students through the collection, compilation and analysis of multi-perspective sources. Students with their teacher will then organise local public events such as exhibitions or debates to showcase the cases they researched in a way that questions the resonance of such history today.
