Look back, think ahead – this is the motto of the two linked events of histoCON 2020 organized by the Federal Agency for Civic Education/Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb), funded by the Federal Foreign Office/Auswärtiges Amt, from May 6-9, 2020 in Berlin. histoCON 2020 aims at two different target groups of different ages. It will not only commemorate the end of the war on the 8th of May, but also bring together 500 young people aged between 18 and 35 from all over the world, in order to discuss narratives about the Second World War, its continuing effects and lessons that can be drawn from its history. The central question of the event will be: 75 years after WWII: Peace under Construction?
