In just over one month the exhibition “European Identities” has attracted about 16.000 visitors. One main focus of the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo is to offer educational programmes and open up for discussions in context with the exhibits. Two educational programmes utilize this exhibit, one focusing on the issue of identity and another on the sense of belonging, group attachment and conflict. Up until mid-April near to 40 school groups had participated in these school events next to the standard group and public tours.
