Crowdsourcing Historical Documents

In our temporary history lab, we collect and digitise your stories and documents. We are interested in your personal memories, which we would like to document and investigate for our project by conducting oral history interviews with you.

Historical Voices from the Minett

Our interactive video installation features several personal stories related to the past and present of the Minett. Based upon existing and new historical research, the stories have been written by a team of historians and anthropologists to highlight various aspects of life in and around Esch-sur-Alzette throughout the 20th century.
