The project „Memory without borders – Historical documents as basis for cross border identity and culture“ – part of the European Programme for Territorial Cooperation Slovak-Republic-Austria – faces since February 2012 the challenge to build up new networks between Slovak and Austrian archives.

The final conference offers archives of the border region, their users as well as historical and genealogical associations a platform to present their activities and to exchange ideas.

Special offer: Free bus transfers from Vienna to Bratislava on 13th of May – free bustransfer from Bratislava to Vienna on 14th of May. The number of participants is limited. Please indicate your interest in the application!

Due to the high number of conference registrations we had to close the application earlier as planned. Please excuse any inconveniences that might arise due to this.
