A participatory project

A real gateway to all the history sites in the Land of Memory territories, “Our Common Heritage” aims to explain how history allows us to better understand the present and the challenges of a shared memory.

In order to help teachers to best prepare their visits to this travelling exhibition, the project partners wished to provide them with a pedagogical guide. This includes sheets that can be distributed to students during the visit and that will help them, in a fun and participatory way, to understand the topics discussed in the exhibition.
This guide will soon be available on this page.

An interesting tool to use with the students: the participatory module that has been specially designed for this exhibition. It invites them to participate in a large collection of images, photos, documents or objects from family archives, which will be integrated into the exhibition through digital screens and on the exhibition website.
The search for such elements from their relatives gives an intimate and personal dimension to this exhibition. This exercise is thus particularly indicated to prepare the visit, but above all to awaken the students’ interest in the duty to remember. The students are thus directly involved in history.

Other Land of Memory educational tools
Other pedagogical tools have been developed as part of the Land of Memory project and support the pedagogical approach to awaken the curiosity of students. You can discover them on the following link.



For the first time, this exhibition travels for the first time on a single medium through the cross-border history of 4 different and yet so closely linked countries, namely Germany, Belgium, France and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, whose heart forms the Greater Region.
It also offers a long-term vision highlighting the causes and consequences of the two World Wars up to the construction of Europe, the cradle of our values and current freedoms.

The itinerant and immersive exhibition is of course aimed at the general public, but with a special focus on the students of the Greater Region’s classrooms.
Its objective is to make people want to discover the past of the Greater Region through its tourist sites of remembrance. “Our Common Heritage” will invite you to discover more about these historical sites, each one for its singular atmosphere and the particular memory it conveys.

To go further, the partners of Land of Memory have set up proposals for cross-border memorial trips for school groups. They bring together the most pedagogical experiences adapted to young people. Their programs are tailor-made and, according to the wishes of teachers, modular and adaptable to the budget and time they have at their disposal.
And for those who wish to prepare their group visit (especially for schools), this is the place to be.
