Who we are and what we do

Associació Conèixer Història (Knowing History Association) is a non-profit organization founded in 2008 with the aim of researching and disseminating the past to better understand the present and to reach a fair and more democratic future.

The founding members of the association are graduates in History and postgraduates in Historical Culture and Communication. The ACH is open to anyone who wants to become a member, to collaborate or to make suggestions.

The ACH, with its activity, aims to dignify and honor those who fought against totalitarianism to reach a democratic system and to gain individual and collective freedoms.

The ACH also aims to recover the so-called “memory sites” where important historical events took place in Catalonia and Spain, especially during the Second Republic, the Spanish Civil War, the Franco dictatorship and the Transition to democracy.

Our activities are based both on existing material and new research done by the Association members. This website is the public way to disseminate what we do.
