Global perspectives of history and memory

histoCON took place for the first time in 2020 on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe. Due to the pandemic we were unable to meet people from all over the world in Berlin in person. We encountered many different views of history and memory nonetheless. Discover which places we have visited already!
