Did you grow up during the Cold War, on either side of the divides, or have you experienced (post)socialist society during childhood? Would you be willing to share your childhood memories? If so, we would like to invite you to share your memory story about your own childhood experiences around the theme ‘crossing divides’. The word ‘divide’ can signal Cold War divisions of the world but also divisions along real or imagined borders and boundaries that are continuously drawn and redrawn along multiple historical or other, constantly shifting lines. Please use the form below to write your memory. Thank you!

*Before publishing online, we will carefully review and edit your memory story. You may choose to use your name or share your memory anonymously.
