During her visit to  the Bergen Belsen memorial site in Germany, Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain was introduced to the SPECS app "Here" by SPECS' director Paul Verschure. SPECS developed the "Here" app, together with other virtual and augmented reality systems to address the memory crisis we are facing in the cultural heritage of the second world war, the Holocaust and Nazi crimes. The app is in use at the memorial site and a derived installation is running at the Wiener Library, Memory in a Digital Age, in London, the oldest Holocaust archive in the world.
