A Better Understanding of Our Cultural Diversity by Digitalizing Our Cultural Heritage[edit]

This large exhibition provided an opportunity to learn about the lives of European citizens. The photos capture the everyday life of men and women who lived before the Second World War. The exhibition is the result of the collaboration of international partners, such as museums, archives, private enterprises, public administrations and agencies from 13 EU member states, meeting in the Europeana Photography project (EUROPEAN Ancient Photographic vintage repositories of Digitized Pictures of Historic quality). This project saw the digitization of collections of vintage photographs from 1839 with the first example of images from Fox Talbot and Daguerre to the beginning of the Second World War (1939).
