Joint History Books 


The Joint History Books were the central programm of the Center for Democracy and Reconciliation in Southeast Europe (CDRSEE), a regional and impact-oriented NGO based in Thessaloniki that sought to foster democratic, pluralist, and peaceful societies in Southeast Europe. Despite of producing one of the most successful projects ever, in 2019 the CDRSEE has been forced to shut down due to the lack of funds.

On the initiative of the European Fund for the Balkans (EFB), through the support for the creation and maintenance of this website, these books are again available to the public. The EFB understands that these books are an important tool not only for history teaching, but also for opening a culture of dialogue and different ways of thinking. The Joint History Books can be a way out of a largely one-dimensional education system in the region of Southeast Europe and they have the potential to encourage exchange about different perspectives and experiences.
