Entered by Szczecin City Hall

In 2018, Poland celebrates the 100th anniversary of its independence. Szczecin, a Polish city with population of c. 377,000 inhabitants, was within Germany’s borders in 1918. The team had to address a key question. How to celebrate this special day in Szczecin – a city, which a hundred years ago was German, and after WWII was searching for its own identity. A central goal was to show how a national holiday can be celebrated in a calm and balanced way, without the extremes of people marching and shouting nationalist slogans but in a family-friendly atmosphere focusing on people and their stories rather than politics. The team believed that a celebration of everyday life from the perspective of
inhabitants, was the best way to mark the occasion.
