von: Pavel Franzusov

What stories connect Australia to World War II? In this #histoVOICES episode, Kim from Australia tells how discriminatory legislation affected the situation of Aboriginal Australians during and after the war. Get a glimpse at global memories of war as well as hopes for peace, liberty and human rights of young people from all over the world!


What does our connection to World War II look like today? #histoVOICES is an artistic approach to grasp our thoughts, fears and fragile memories of what happened 75 years ago. Different national and social backgrounds and their impact on narratives are not masked, but allowed to exist simultaneously.

#histoVOICES is part of histoCON an event series organized by the Federal Agency for Civic Education/Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb), which is designed to be a platform to share and discuss global perspectives on history and its relation to present and future. The aim is to discuss narratives about historical events, its continuing effects, and lessons that can be drawn from its history. The explicit intention is not only to commemorate the particular historical event but also to consider the implications for the present and future. Furthermore, it is intended to encourage young people from all over the world to get to know different perspectives of history, to question existing narratives, and to reflect on questions of war and peace in today’s world.
