Archive day: Black on white

14 Nov at 12:00 - 15:00

Archive day ö

Archives Day is a national collaboration and is celebrated every year on the second Saturday in November across the country. The archives contain documents that testify to our history, decisions made as well as people's memories and thoughts. If you want to know what really happened and how the contemporaries experienced the event, you should go to the archives. There is the living story - in the original! The archives are the memory of society.

This year, Österlens Museum celebrates for the first time the Archives' day in the new museum magazine Garvaren.

12: Look into our new archive with antiquarian Ulrika Wallebom and archive assistant Annette Glimberg.

Kl. 13: Lecture by Magnus Lindskog “Genealogy. Black on white - but still in color ”.
Magnus Lindskog is chairman of Österlen's genealogy and folk life association and known by many for his deep dives into the archives.

Kl. 14: Lecture by Martin Eriksson “Exclusion, assimilation or extermination?

Martin Ericsson is a researcher and associate professor at the Department of History, and defended his dissertation in the spring of 2015 on the dissertation “Exclusion, assimilation or extermination? The 'Tattar question' in Swedish politics 1880–1955 ”. It is about the policy that Swedish authorities pursued against the people who were derogatoryly pointed out as "tatters" during the 1800th and 1900th centuries, including many people in the Swedish traveling people.
