The statutory tasks of the Nation's Memory Institute include promotion of the ideas of freedom and the defence of democracy against regimes similar to Nazism and Communism. The Nation's Memory Institute therefore strongly condemns the now year-long military aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, preceded by an eight-year long conflict that began with Russia's occupation of Ukraine's Crimea and part of the Donbas in 2014.
The webinar is produced for teachers of primary schools and secondary schools working with students aged 13–18, in particular teachers of history and civic education, as well as teachers of all subjects especially from Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Romania, Hungary and all English-speaking schools.

We, the members of the Network, hereby declare our indignation at the destruction of a precious source of historical memory and of the restitution process. We also express our solidarity with our Ukrainian colleagues who have not forgotten their profession amid the days of war.
