Description The process of re-collecting and remembering is 'fragile', full of discontinuities that are worthy of further research, because they disprove our understanding of history (or rather of the past) as a smooth process with a given (happy) ending. To analyse them means to understand better what challenges people and communities in the past faced. It also helps us to comprehend the transformation of the memories in certain epochs and how these are related to the different identifications. Therefore, we will focus in our panel on how these neuralgic points were created and perceived on one side, on the other side, we will discuss the transformation of the memories in certain periods of time throughout Europe.
