Mission & Activities

We want society, especially youth, learns about the past human rights violations and has a critical look at violence and intolerance.

As a voluntary, participatory, innovative and independent organisation, we conduct

  • memory projects with/for young people,

  • meetings and trainings on dealing with the past,

  • and historical dialogue projects between communities.


Our first project is the Memory Walk:  Its main objective is to create a guided memory tour in Istanbul, at which young people between 16 - 25 years can visit the places where human rights violations happened in the past. In the Memory Walk, young people can reflect upon intolerance and violence against different identities and learn survivors’ stories.
