The Atlantikwall Europe project would at best have united partners from all Atlantic Wall countries. However, no network exists yet for this shared war heritage. It is also a very ‘difficult’ heritage. Partner-wise, the project unites some of the biggest organisations that work actively to keep this heritage alive. They are four, from three countries on the Atlantic coast.

Six other, but smaller partners were from the beginning involved in the preparations for this project and all contribute in kind to the project actions. It is a matter of capacity, not of willing, that they are associate partners. The mere communication on starting a European network, attracted already other (future ?) partners. This is a reason more to develop a European heritage network, in which the present partners can generate interest in order to establish a sustainable European cooperation of shared war heritage, and to make it a platform, connecting in a later stage to other European countries or organisations, for the discussion on peace, liberty and all European values so dear to our youth and future generations.  This message we want to transmit through our project actions.
