About the Liberation Route Europe Foundation
The Liberation Route Europe Foundation works with government organizations, universities, museums, local and regional governments, tourism authorities and travel trade organizations, veterans associations, commemorative events organisers etc. in different European countries (United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic and Italy), to bring together national perspectives on the liberation of Europe, to learn, and to share experiences and understanding, in order to create a unified awareness of the importance of freedom. The Foundation commemorates the events of the Second World War and encourages the citizens of Europe to celebrate and cherish it for the future.
The Foundation’s mission
The Foundation’s mission is to monitor and develop Liberation Route Europe concept; to organise promotional activities, provide knowledge and information to regions that are interested in the concept; and to work on the further expansion of Liberation Route Europe. Furthermore, the Foundation seeks to function as a portal for the public to access museums, events and other related activities in these regions of Europe.
The Liberation Route Europe Foundation aims to promote the European Liberation Route, which is from 2019 a certified Cultural Route of the Council of Europe, and make it accessible and educational. It wants to attract as many visitors as possible to the route that the allies took through Western Europe between July 1943 and May 1945, so that they can explore and discover the history behind it.
The Liberation Route Europe Foundation uses modern means of communication, such as websites and apps that can be accessed on route to unlock stories from people who were involved in the final phases of the Second World War. The aim is to bring an important episode in the history of Europe back to life; one in which freedom was lost and won back again, and to keep it alive for the people of today and generations to come.
Values and message
The Liberation Route Europe Foundation also seeks to promote the idea that freedom in Europe is not something we should take for granted. In this way, the Liberation Route Europe Foundation hopes to build a bridge to the future, one that asks us how we can preserve our freedom.
