The Embassy of Switzerland in Romania in partnership with the Institute for the Investigation of Communist Crimes and the Memory of Romanian Exile will organize on June 14 and 15, 2011, in Bucharest, a symposium on the role of historian’s commission in the process of dealing with the past. The event will feature scholars from both countries who were either directly involved in the functioning of such commissions or who have written extensively on their role and significance.
In 2011, Switzerland and Romania celebrate a century of diplomatic relations. The anniversary of our countries’ mutual friendship and historical partnership is an excellent framework of academic dialogue. The symposium will therefore be an opportunity for common, shared knowledge on the difficult task of working through the responsibilities and traumas our recent histories.
