Rail Recollections

A Pan-European online collecting action on formative rail experiences across the continent

In 2021 we celebrate the European Year of Rail. The EUROPALIA programme “Trains & Tracks” will explore the impact of the train from artistic and societal perspectives. To contribute to the EUROPALIA Trains & Tracks programme, the House of European History is creating a pan-European online collection of personal stories about train travels across national borders as a common formative European experience. These will connect and compare shared experiences from across the continent, highlight a multiplicity of perspectives on movement, mobility and the European dimension in the debate on the historical and contemporary role of trains in Europe.

Would you be able to provide a short video recording on this topic? Read the background, questions and technical specifications.
