European Observatory on Memories of the Fundació Solidaritat UB. Directed by Ricard Vinyes (Universitat de Barcelona), the publication includes a series of articles that highlight the management of memory - its traumas, but also the challenges of restitution and coexistence - in Europe and America throughout the 20th and 21st centuries.
