Rail Recollections
© House of European History

On the occasion of EUROPALIA TRAINS & TRACKS, the House of European History launches Rail Recollections: an initiative that will give people the opportunity to share and discover personal stories related to the experience of travelling by train. A web page created for the occasion will gather the testimonies collected across Europe before and during the festival. The general public as well as artists participating in the festival will take part in the exercise.

The age of railways - how the invention of trains shaped European society, an online panel debate bringing together researchers, historians and train enthusiasts from all over Europe, will look at the role and social, economic and cultural impact of trains and railways on European societies and mentalities from the second half of the 19th century to the present day.

An online focus will also allow visitors to discover objects and works from the museum's collection related to the theme of railways, revealing their impact on Europe's recent history.
