Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo

Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo (‘House of European History in Exile’) takes you more than half a century back in time to the early twenty-first century. Although little-studied, this period nevertheless provided the breeding-ground for the sweeping changes that were to take place during our century. It was a remarkable era, characterised by Integration and Harmonisation. Blessed by the Long Peace. Overshadowed by the Great Recession. Back when national borders were blurred and people everywhere used a single currency called the ‘euro’. Back when Brussels, not Warsaw, lay at the beating heart of the old continent.


The first international exhibition on life in the former European Union.
