Remembering Victims of Terrorism: A Guidance Document

21 Mar, 2019

Over the past 10 years, Europe has been the target of numerous terrorist threats and attacks, which have not only affected victims and their families, but have also affected society as a whole.

Spontaneous memorials, usually in the form of flowers and messages, often take place as people feel the need to come together in solidarity and recognition of the victims.
