International cooperation

Post Bellum is proud to be a part of an international network of partner organizations, and is actively working on the development and growth of such a network. We bring together documentarists, historians, journalists and teachers in order to preserve peoples’ memories, develop critical thinking and support the values at the core of our society. Our goal is to expand this approach within Europe and beyond.

Thanks to our regional branches around the Czech Republic we carry out various concepts of cross-border cooperation with our neighbours. This helps people come to terms with their own history and fill in the trenches opened up by historical grievances.

  • Documenting

Our international collection, www.memoryofnations.eu, is one of the broadest open databases of witness testimonies and contains hundreds of recordings of foreign witnesses from tens of countries. We cooperate with documentarists from three continents, and our mobile studio heads out to record abroad both near and far. With our own studio or local documentarists, we record testimonies in Cuba, Ukraine, Belarus, Germany, Poland, Austria, Israel, the USA and other countries.

Since 2011, we cooperate with our sister organisation “Post Bellum SK” in Slovakia.

In 2020, our sister organisation “Post Bellum Ukraine” was established in Lviv.

  • Human rights projects

An important part of our activities compose human rights projects – we support documentarists from Belarus, Cuba and Myanmar and help processing and distributing their recordings of dissidents and political prisoners in order to foster democratization and civil society in general.

  • Educating and Narrating

Together with our international partners we cooperate with schools and educational institutes.

We are searching internationally for crucial topics and events of our common history and make forgotten life experiences public in the form of exhibitions, comic books, media outputs etc.
