Day III at #IFAIR's "Common Remembrance, Future Relations" evolution meeting.

Although Berlin did not show off its best and sunny side yesterday, we had an extremely insightful three hour walking tour "Berlin as a Memorial Landscape" with the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Afterwards we made our way back to the hotel to evaluate the meeting in Berlin, Germany, and the project as a whole.

Unfortunately, this was the last time we came together, but we are excited to see what the next months will bring and how our participants are going to implement their joint projects!
