On May 8 at 11:00, on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the victory over Nazi Germany in WWII, the Valdai Discussion Club held an online presentation of its new report, titled “Forgive but Not Forget? The Image of War in Culture and Historical Memory”.
The authors of the report focused their analysis on two main aspects related to historical memory – the image of war in the modern cultural space and the features of the formation of historical memory in German society. How does historical memory affect international relations? What are the features of the formation of the historical memory of the war in Russia and Germany? How has it changed over time? Participants of the meeting answered these and many other questions.
