History Campus is a place where we discuss identity and history of young Europeans. So, we decided to make that history personal. We want to create a safe place where we can share with each other the things that made us who we are. We are packing our Memory Suitcase. Inside of it we want to put the items of our personal histories for the sake of understanding our common present.
During our lives we become attached to certain items that were given to us. And no matter if we carry them in our bags, or in our minds, they become a symbol of who we are, of our personal history. Our grandfather’s old chess board, our grandmother’s old cookbook with our favorite meal in it, our mother’s sweater, …
No matter how big or small, it is time to get those objects out and share them with the world. The dustier, the better!
