Holocaust remembrance

75 years after the end of the Shoah, the German Embassy in the UK has released a poignant video of British and German voices on the future of Holocaust remembrance. The video addresses denial, distortion, populism, and how best to educate future generations.


Ambassadors Andreas Michaelis and Jill Gallard will be kicking off LSE’s annual German Symposium with a discussion on redefining the Anglo-German relationship. Monday 1 February at 14:30 GMT (15:30 CET). English language. Sign-ups required.
