Initiated by our friend and colleague Doğan Akhanlı, who passed away in 2021, we have been working on a transnational culture of remembrance in the Global Remembering project since 2020. Now we have created digital city maps of local-global interconnections of the Global North and South, East and West in Berlin, Bremen, Frankfurt, Kassel and Cologne. You can find them here.
In each city there are historical events, thematic tours and people related to global history: Strikes of migrant workers; sites of African organizing in Europe; people who were active in the international resistance against fascism. Some places were central to emigration from Europe, others played(d) an important role in global economic relations then and now. Traces of German colonialism, National Socialism and right-wing extremist violence can also be traced on the maps. You can also find more about the project
