The Europeana 1914-1918 and Europeana 1989 projects are pan-European initiatives to collect memorabilia and stories from two prominent time periods that changed the face and shape of Europe. These projects aim to create a vivid and complete picture of WWI (1914-1918) and the revolutions of Eastern Europe (1989). By combining these personal stories with institutional collections, Europeana is creating unique and engaging online user experiences like no other.
In 2013 a series of Europeana 1989 collection days were held in Warsaw, Poznan and Gdansk. This year, to commemorate the beginning of the WWI centenary, Europeana 1914-1918 plans to launch a campaign in Poland and is inviting Polish cultural institutions to participate.
