Abstract: The aim of the project Unveiling personal memories on war and detention is to affirm personal memories of all interested witnesses of political events in Croatia and to preserve them from falling into oblivion. We believe that it is possible to obtain a deeper understanding of seemingly hidden aspects of political turmoil and conflicts, which happened in these areas, through recording and conveying people's personal experience. During 2010, we started recording personal memories on the territory of the entire Croatia and have recorded more than 400 video interviews. Interviewees could choose from one of the options regarding to the level of privacy of the recorded material. A large part of the video materials has been transcribed, translated and made available in the video archives of this web site, while a part of the interviews is available only for research in Documenta.
