The Distance Between History and Experience" by the Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki jointly organized with the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, the Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki, and the Deutsches Historisches Museum.
The workshop was part of Thesswiki, a project that began in 2015 under the auspices of the Municipality of Thessaloniki and implemented by PostScriptum, in cooperation with the Wikimedia Community User Group Greece.
