On Monday 16 December, the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies organizes an evening in light of the Great War centennial with presentations by Mélanie Bost (CEGESOMA), Kees Ribbens (NIOD), Angela Schwarz (Universität Siegen) and Dan Todman (Queen Mary University of London).
Among other topics, the experts will address how the issue of the commemoration is dealt with by German authorities. And how is the Great War currently perceived by the, then, neutral Dutch? Furthermore, does the economic impact of the centennial play a role in Belgium, and will the civil experience during the war be commemorated in Great Britain? What role is there for historians?
The event starts at 19:30 at De Balie (Kleine Gartmanplantsoen 10, Amsterdam, the Netherlands). For more information about the event and registration, see the invitation NIOD’s website.
