The Enrich Europeana project aims to make it possible for users to transcribe and enrich a wide variety of digital heritage collections. To implement the tool, the consortium partners organised engaging events around the theme of the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Iron Curtain. In this guest post from Anca Docolin and Georgeta Topan of the Cluj County Library (Octavian Goga) - partner in Enrich Europeana - we explore the events that took place at their venue last December.

100 years have passed since the end of World War One and we are still unlocking the personal stories and experiences from this period. In the lead up to the Centenary Tour Finale event in Brussels, we offer to shed more light onto one such story and artefact; that of Kurt Geiler and his life-saving bible. We share an in-depth interview with Kurt’s grandson Markus Geiler, exploring the digital transformation of this artefact and the impact of digitising cultural heritage.
To mark the ending of the World War One centenary, and to showcase Europeana 1914-1918, we have joined forces with the House of European History for a very special series of events on Tuesday 27 and Wednesday 28 November.
