Memory Alive was created to illustrate and commemorate historical events during WW2, especially portraying the role of Greece, by highlighting experiences made by Jewish people during that time. The main goal of projects, such as Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste and Footprints in Silence, is the preservation of important historical memories and the exchange of crucial information regarding the experiences made by large marginalized groups of people.
