Konference: Pre-genocide - Warnings and readiness to protect (Lyngby)

Tid

Onsdag, 26. september 2018 - 16:30 til Fredag, 28. september 2018 - 12:00

Sted

Hotel Sinatur, Lyngby

Konferencen vil kaste lys på tilløbet til Holocaust i fem lande - Tyskland, Polen, Ungarn, Holland og Danmark -- i årene før katastrofen. Hvornår og hvordan begyndte alarmlamper at blinke?

Bagefter sagde verden: "Aldrig mere".

Men flere folkedrab fulgte, blandt dem i Cambodia, irakisk Kurdistan, Rwanda og Bosnia.

Humanity In Action har inviteret en kreds af internationale historikere til at skrive og fortælle om tilløbet til Holocaust og de andre folkedrab på en international konference i Frederiksdal ved Lyngby den 26-28. september.

Spørgsmålet vil være: Hvordan gik det galt dengang? Og er vi helt sikre på, at verden i dag har lært at reagere på advarsler før folkedrab?

Man tilmelder sig konferencen ved at sende en mail til [email protected] med navn, adresse, email og mobilnummer - og ved samtidig at indbetale konferencegebyrer på 900 kr (eller 700 kr for studerende) på Nordea Bank, reg. nummer 2040, konto 6886880802 . Gebyret omfatter konferencen, 2 x frokost, 2 x aftensmad, koncert, en ny antologi "Før Folkedrabet - advarsler og internationalt beredskab" og en udflugt til Gilleleje (hvis kirken er færdigrestaureret).
