Comparisions of regionals researches and finding a broader geographical context can be also very inspiring. So the conference „Regional memory places: Western Bohemia and Middle Germany – a comparision” (Regionale Erinnerungsorte: Westböhmen und Mitteldeutschland im europäischen Kontext) in November 2011 was for me a great possibility to see the bigger picture.
It was organised in Greiz by the Technische Universität Chemnitz, Professor of the European Regional History in cooperation with the Dialog mit Böhmen e.V. / Antikomplex e.V. / SOA Cheb, Greiz (Thüringen).
It was important for me to analyse the regional connotations of the monuments.
