The award ceremony of the Swiss History Competition 2013-2015 took place on 30 May 2015 in the City Museum of Aarau. This recently re-opened museum was the perfect location to celebrate the awarded works because one of the exhibitions called “From the French Revolution to the Facebook Like-Button” is questioning the development of democratic values and citizenship with a special focus on the Swiss way of democracy.
