78 years after the end of the Second World War, war is raging again in the middle of Europe. This time it is one of the countries that liberated the world from the brown plague in 1945 in the role of aggressor. How could it be that three quarters of a century after the victory over fascism, Russia, the victorious country, shows all the signs of a revived fascist dictatorship?
To answer this question it is necessary to turn to history and its unlearned lessons. To clear the memory of propaganda distortions, to recall the crimes of the Soviet dictatorship, long hushed up, not to forget the ongoing crimes of the Russian regime. But our main task for today is to bring the new victory-defeat closer. Aggression must be defeated.
We are going to set up a small tent camp with exhibition material, a platform for performances and various interactive programmes for two full days on 8 and 9 May in Treptow Park.
- (re)reflecting on the historical significance of this date and this place in the context of current events,
- Informing visitors to the monument about the crimes of the Soviet and Russian regimes and their connection to the ongoing war in Ukraine,
- An appeal to the German government to recognise Germany’s historical responsibility towards Ukraine and to support it even more comprehensively in its liberation struggle against Russian aggression.
