To commemorate the end of World War II, the bpb will be organizing the histoCON 2020 in Berlin, Germany, from the 6th to the 9th of May 2020. 500 young people aged between 18 and 35 from around the world will be invited to this festival to learn about and discuss new perspectives on war and post-war events. The histoCON 2020 combines two events for two different target groups in one location: the "Newcomers", and the "Young Professionals". The explicit intention of the histoCON 2020 is not only to commemorate World War II but also to consider the implications for the present and future. Our event will be subdivided into three focal points concentrating on "After the Holocaust", "Global Memories of War" and "Hopes for Peace, Liberty and Human Rights".
