ICMEMO - Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes

International Committee of Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes

The International Committee of Memorial Museums in Remembrance of the Victims of Public Crimes was established in July 2001. The aims of ICMEMO are to foster a responsible memory of history and to further cultural cooperation through education and through using knowledge in the interests of peace, which is also a key goal of UNESCO. The purpose of these Memorial Museums is to commemorate victims of State, socially determined and ideologically motivated crimes. The institutions are frequently located at the original historical sites, or at places chosen by survivors of such crimes for the purposes of commemoration. They seek to convey information about historical events in a way which retains a historical perspective while also making strong links to the present.
