Europeana 1989

1 January 2012 to: 31 December 2014

Europeana 1989 is pan-European project concerning the political and social changes in Central and Eastern Europe in the year 1989; commonly known as the fall of the Iron Curtain.

The project aims to create a vivid and complete picture of the revolutionary events in Europe with stories, photos, videos and sound recordings from every country affected. Personal stories, memories and experiences can help others to better understand what it was like and to see events from a different perspective.

By collecting personal memorabilia and stories from this period, and combining it with institutional collections, we aim to create an engaging user experience.
