What It’s Like to Be an Author for the EUSTORY History Campus Blog

My expectations from handing in the article before seeing it published For clarification, I must say that I had sent the ar...

1919: A special blue carrier pigeon of peace

How to lose one third of your empire in 140 characters? Today we can hardly imagine the political sphere without daily tweets and constant online communication. Imagine how political life and our world would have looked if social media existed 100 years ago! What insights could we gain, which are different from the usual official statements? We are inviting you to a social experiment: During the E...

What if … you were drafted to defend your country tomorrow?

Over one hundred years ago, many of our ancestors couldn´t wait to fight for their country. Some even volunteered to go to the front. With the memory of two world wars and countless military conflicts, the attitude towards defending your country as a soldier might have changed. We asked participants of the EUSTORY Next Generation Summit how they would react if they were drafted to defend their cou...

Happy Birthday, Google! Can the Search Engine Replace History Teachers and Libraries?

What is our first thought when we don’t know something? “Just Google it up!”. Google will celebrate its 20th birthday this year and it is undeniable that the search engine occupies a prominent role in our lives. But could Google (and technology in general) go further and completely replace libraries, archives or even teachers by becoming the sole instrument to research, teach and learn history? Co...

In December, the EUSTORY History Campus Blog is calling for new members of its Editors’ Group. Do you want to know what the work of an Editor for the blog looks like? Gregor, Editor since 2015, gives some insights into a typical month of an Editor.

Controversy of the Monument

  We often hear about the clash of political regimes, be it either in historical movies, documentaries, books or in lectures. Visiting Budapest as participants of the EUSTORY History Camp, we learnt that the city offers a special manifestation of that clash represented with a monument and its location.

What If… You Woke up 30 Years Ago in a Communist Regime?

The young participants of our last History Camp came up with yet another interesting question on their backpacking tour through the three out of four Visegrad states. Namely, they wondered about people’s reaction to the following situation: “What if… you woke up 30 years ago in a communist regime? How would you react?”

Budapest: A Beauty With the Dark Past

    As participants of one of the most recent History Camps observed, and as Vida writes here, Budapest is a lovely European city. There is a nice square with water fountains, and behind them there is the stunning architecture of the Hungarian parliament. However, even the now beautiful places often have its much more gloomy past. Have a look at what kind of past hides the parliament in ...

The Moral Compass

With freedom of press endangered in many parts of Europe and the work of independent journalists becoming harder and harder we wanted to know first hand what it is like to work as a journalist with an interest in human rights and female empowerment in today’s Poland. Five of our young journalists met Iwona Reichard, Deputy Editor and Lead Translator of the New Eastern Europe in Gdańsk and ta...

Where Were You When… The Troops of the Warsaw Pact Invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968?

The 27th anniversary of the beginning of the Velvet Revolution in then Czechoslovakia on 17 November 1998 brings back memories of a less peaceful uprising in 1968. Reconsidering the past, young Europeans have been asking to the people on Pragues streets: Where were you when the troops of the Warsaw Pact invaded Czechoslovakia on 21 August 1968?

If You Could Bring Back One Item from the Times of Czechoslovak Socialist Republic (CSSR) What Would It Be and Why?

However unpleasant the circumstances, there will always be people who would be proponents of the past, whatever the regime or the political system at that time. This seems to be the case especially in post-communist countries, for which the transition into a democracy does not always go smoothly. In light of this, during our trip to the Czech Republic, we asked citizens of Prague the question:‘If ...

@work in Tbilisi: Discovering differences and similarities

What are the best ways to deal with identity and nationalism in Europe?
