Never forget

War Sailors Register

08. Mar 2018 KL. 18:00 - 19:00

How to preserve this part of history for the future? Lecture by documentation director at Stiftelsen Arkivet, Saskia Klooster.

The War Sailors Register is a digital monument, where each war sailor has its own "website". Here information is published about the ships they sailed on, the torpedings they were exposed to and the awards they received afterwards. More and more unknown information is being made available, which is not least of interest to the many descendants of the war sailors. The audience also contributes with unique documentation and images, thus creating a greater basis for disseminating the history of the war sailors. The lecture will give a presentation and introduction to the use of the digital site.
