Territories of Memory is a centre of education in the name of Resistance and Citizenship. To perform work of remembrance with children, young people and adults, the association develops a wide array of initiatives for communicating the past, promoting respect for others, and encouraging everyone’s involvement in building a democratic society that safeguards fundamental freedoms.

When the Second World War came to an end, numerous people decided to do all they could to ensure that the horror of armed conflicts, large-scale massacres, and Nazi concentration and extermination camps never happened again.

In the early 1990s, far-right parties and movements made their reappearance in democratically elected assemblies in both the north and south of Belgium.

Today, a fair number of freedom-destroying ideas have become commonplace and some people are no longer shy of claiming that none of it happened at all. So, what are we going to do when the voices of the last witnesses have died out?

In the face of the new threats and beyond our justified indignation, it is urgent that we engage with the issue on a daily basis.

The association believes that work on remembrance is vital in order to avoid reproducing the mistakes made in the past, in order to understand and decode the world around us and in order to participate in building a more solidary society that places the human being at the centre of all concerns.

Rapport d'activités 2019

C’est une réalité ! L’Europe voit l’extrême-droite assombrir son avenir ! À nouveau ! Comme la répétition d’un mauvais rêve ! Les idées liberticides se répandent, elles grandissent en influence, elles se banalisent. Dans tous les pays d’Europe, en France, en Italie, en Pologne, en Hongrie, en Autriche, en Allemagne, au Royaume-Uni, en Espagne et dans notre pays, des partis ouvertement d’extrême-droite progressent, alors que cette perspective semblait impensable à la fin du siècle passé. Certains sont historiquement marqués à l’extrême droite, d’autres avancent masqués.

Et parallèle, les États qui fondent l’Europe et qui on fondé l’Union européenne après la guerre, dont le nôtre, tournent le dos aux valeurs universelles avec une multiplication de mesures répressives, sexistes, racistes et antisociales. L’Europe, une mer déchaînée où la tempête est la norme : violence politique, assassinat politique, exécutions extrajudiciaires, racisme ordinaire, racisme sur facebook, déni de solidarité, montée et installation de l’extrême droite dans les conseils et les assemblées, négationnisme, manipulation de l’histoire, manipulation de la mémoire, etc.
