The Atlantic Wall has become a symbol of oppression and exclusion experienced during the German occupation of Western Europe. This shared heritage should therefore be a place of remembrance, linking events of the past with present-day European issues and urging us to reflect on our common European values. But how should we relate to the highly visible remnants of the Atlantic Wall and their strong military connotations ethically? Could a ethical charter for Atlantic Wall sites that respects the Venice Charter on Heritage Preservation (1964) and the ICOMOS Charter on the Interpretation and Presentation of Cultural Heritage Sites (2008), be helpful in answering or addressing this question? During this webinar these questions will be discussed based on various cases.
The Atlantikwall Europe projects seeks to promote the heritage of the Atlantic Wall as a source of inspiration for cooperation with cultural and educational partners, and to develop a sustainable network of Atlantic Wall heritage sites.
Thursday March 18th AtlantikWall Europe organized a webinar focussing on the question how sites can organise public access to their surroundings and still tell their stories even thought access to their buildings may be limited.
