Why is history important to you?

Written by Haris Huremagić
born 1994 in Austria with Bosnian roots, student of law and slavonic studies, likes debating about music, philosophy, politics but becomes most passionate about historical topics.

This content was developed during a workshop at the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit 2017 from 6 to 10 October 2017 in Berlin. It brought together 100 participants from Europe and beyond who worked together with experts from the fields of academia, journalism, education and arts to explore, analyse, discuss different historical topics and highlighte their relevance for a changing Europe today.

Driven by their passion for history more than 100 young Europeans made their way to Berlin, against all odds: storm Xavier devastated northern parts of Germany cutting of train connections to the German capital. Five participants told us why history is important to them.

Anete, Latvia

Elvira, Russia

Andreas, Belgium

Sarah, Ireland

Pauline, Germany
