With the political changes of 1989 came also changes in financial and commercial realities. Many of those who created history up to this point have felt excluded in the new reality, their work places slowly collapsed into the financial abyss, and their skills were no longer in need. Young participants will be invited to also look at these changes. Through history lectures and interviews with history witnesses they will be encouraged to explore the exclusion and the sacrifices made by those who have felt left out.
