The exhibition project “Remember Together 2024” was opened in the city of Utrecht. A fragment of the exhibition about Mariupol, “Labyrinths of Unbreakable Cities”, became part of the exhibition. The purpose of participation in the event is to remind the European audience of what Ukrainians have been going through during the two years of russia's devastating war against Ukraine.

“Labyrinths of Unbreakable Cities” is not just an exhibition. It is a space- reflection for a deeper understanding of the traumatic impact of war on the city and its people. The posters demonstrate the streets and buildings of the city before and after the start of the full-scale war. All the photos show the ancient architecture on the eve of the invasion and the ruins left after the enemy shelling. At the “Remembering Together 2024” event, visitors had the opportunity to participate in thematic locations, workshops and were involved in the joint making of camouflage nets.

Our task is to constantly remind Europe of the war in Ukraine. In every possible way, each of us must tell the world about the brutal war on the European continent. We are fighting for freedom and democratic values. Ukrainians are doing everything they can to prevent the totalitarian regime of a neighbouring state from winning on their land. Culture is also a weapon! We appreciate one of the important international partners of the Mariupol Reborn project, the Dutch city of Utrecht. We are grateful for understanding of our misfortune, for assistance and support of Mariupol in many ways

In the end, about two thousand people in Utrecht honored the memory of the military and civilians killed during the war in Ukraine. During the event "Remember Together 2024", Ukrainians and the Dutch remembered together how the full-scale invasion began, and it was heard over and over from everywhere: "Glory to Ukraine!"
