Call for Contribution – Launch
The individual war experiences in the study of the conscripts are essential in project Warlux and are included in the research. Ego documents (testimonies, family stories, diaries, letters, postcards, photographs…) are retrieved to complement the data set and existing documents in state and municipal archives. The Warlux project issued a call for crowdsourcing in February 2021, encouraging people to come forward to share their stories and their ego-documents or those of their family members.
The call was launched via a (digital) press conference, followed by newspaper articles and radio announcement and a social media campaign. The campaign will continue nationwide in the coming months with a flyer and poster campaign.
