The project created 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.
