The LRE Foundation is a growing international, inclusive network that connects people and organisations dedicated to preserving and valorising the tangible and intangible cultural heritage related to World War II, its memory and meaning. The organisation’s main objective is to make this history relevant and accessible, especially for the younger generations.

Three key remembrance projects developed by LREF are the Liberation Route Europe, Europe Remembers and the LRE Youth Programme.

  • The Liberation Route Europe is a certified Cultural Route of the Council of Europe that links the main regions along the advance of the Allied Forces in 1943-1945. In order to make the route a physical part of the European landscape, LREF is developing a network of Liberation Route Europe trails that allows new ways to experience the route by hiking, walking, and cycling;

  • Europe Remembers is a platform that brings together commemorative sites, museums, and events in a collaborative, inspirational portal and awareness campaign, set up for the 80th anniversary of the end of WWII;

  • Engaging the younger generations is a key objective for the LRE Foundation. The LRE Youth Programme promotes innovative forms of active remembrance and memory transmission, ensuring that even as living memory becomes history, the stories and sacrifices of individuals will not be forgotten.
