I think that working on difficult and controversial subjects of our
common history *together* could be a very positive contribution that
WMCEE group could bring to not only to the Wikimedia movement but also
to common knowledge in our respective communities. I would be happy to
devote my time and engagement to specifically to this subject.

I agree however that this is not something we should start with and we
should create the framework of our cooperation with something easier.

It is also to important to remember we work mostly on the project (and
cross-project) basis and not necessarily per-country basis.
