ONLINE PANEL: Historical Memory & the Fight Against Fascism

A panel discussion marking 75 years since victory over fascism organised jointly by the Marx Memorial Library and the Society for Cooperation in Russian and Soviet Studies

Monday, 22 June 2020 - 7:00pm

This panel will explore the role of the Soviet Union/communism in the fight against fascism in the 1930s and its defeat in the Second World War.

75 years since victory over Nazi Germany in 1945, it will reflect on how and why this history is now under attack, with particular reference to the resolution passed by the European Parliament ’on the importance of European remembrance for the Future of Europe’ in September 2019.
