The project “Land of Memory” (co-financed by the Interreg Programme for the Greater Region VA Großregion) promotes cross-border commemorative tourism offers around the conflicts of the 20th century. 15 partners from the Greater Region have come together to work on improving the visibility of the memorial sites. To this end, thematic circular routes are being built, memorials and museums are being jointly marketed via a website, and exhibitions and walking tours are being organised.
Several memorials are being renovated to better convey the past of these places. For example, the Schumannseck in Éislek will receive a new innovative educational trail. In addition, a perspective presentation of the Battle of the Bulge will be elaborated. Furthermore, an educational programme will be developed together with the Lycée du Nord.
The project contributes to the preservation of the cultural and natural heritage, but also to the enhancement of knowledge, history and the collective memory of the region.
