Routes of Liberation, European Legacies of the Second World War
The travelling exhibition created by the Liberation Route Europe Foundation: a unique multimedia traveliing exhibition that offers a multiperspective view on the liberation of Europe.
Routes of Liberation: European Legacies of the Second World War is a unique travelling exhibition about the most lethal armed conflict in human history. Featuring a striking contemporary design, the exhibition offers a multi-perspective view on modern European history. The exhibition considers how we lost our freedom during the past century, how we regained our personal liberties and asks what we must do to retain our freedom in the future. The Routes of Liberation Exhibition was created as an initiative from the Liberation Route Europe Foundation in collaboration with a consortium of leading European WWII museums and other partner organisations. The Liberation Route Europe reaches across national borders, seeking to understand multiple historical perspectives. We aim to deepen public understanding about the hard-won freedoms enjoyed within the European Union today, by encouraging shared reflection on the consequences of the Second World War.

“This exhibition a has huge potential, and it is an honour to be a patron of it. Simultaneously, the exhibition paves the path of liberation highlighting the common elements of the route of freedom whilst at the same time highlighting the distinct national differences of the liberation experience. One of the most powerful stories of the 20th century, this is educational, historical and its impact still resonates today.”
Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and patron of the Liberation Route Europe.
