Impressions of prize-winning projects

On the occasion of the EUSTORY History Camp in Oslo, impressions of some of the participants’ prize-winning projects can be explored in our “Competition Entries” section. Among them are those by Dorin Rottenshtreich Robin from Israel and Leonardo Galanti from Italy, two of 2014’s first prize winners. The two High School graduates addressed the topics of “Attitudes toward the Other as Reflected in History” and “’14-’18: The Great War”, their home countries’ competition topics.

What the two prize winners exactly dealt with in their projects, can be read in short summaries about them and their work. Read more about Leonardo’s work here. Read more about Dorin’s work here.

Beside the two above-mentioned contributions one can find many other interesting works by current History Camp participants. Featured are single and group projects from late as well as former competitions from the EUSTORY Network.
