On 6th December 2018, three Mini-Transcribathons were held in Vienna as part of the #EuropeForCulture conference, the closing celebrations of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018. In cooperation with Europeana and Facts & Files, the event was hosted by the Austrian National Library at the Palais Mollard-Clary in Vienna within the scope of the Enrich Europeana project. The event’s main focus was to evaluate the legacy of the Cultural Heritage Year and to encourage further commitment to Europe’s cultural heritage. Visitors had the unique opportunity to work with original letters and diaries from the First World War, immersing themselves in the thoughts of those living at that time. 90 participants from all over Europe transcribed these documents in three fast-paced competitions that each lasted 45 minutes. The winners were those who ran the most miles overall.
