Let's talk

Global perceptions of WWII: Eastern Europe

The 22nd of June marks the anniversary of the invasion of the Soviet Union by Nazi Germany. Against this background, the latest edition of our histoTALK will deal with the memory of the Second World War in Eastern Europe. How did civilians experience the war, what consequences did it have for them? And what influence does WWII still have in the region today? How has memory developed over time?

Listen to our guests Stefan Creuzberger (Germany), Dmytro Hainetdinov (Ukraine) and Aliaksei Lastouski (Belarus) who discussed these topics on 22 June 2020

This edition of the histoTALK took place in coordination with bpb:connect and the international sister network EENCE.
