Are you a London or Cambridge-based student? Join us at the Woolf Institute in Cambridge on 16 May, for a Knowledge Café discussion on the role and responsibility of students and young people in challenging extremist views and confronting the lure of populism.
We will be exploring current challenges against the backdrop of lessons we can learn from the rise of fascism in 1930s Germany, to help generate ideas for promoting greater community solidarity.
This free afternoon seminar will draw on content from Moral and Spiritual Dilemmas in Challenging Times, a study guide we developed with the Council of Christians and Jews, to accompany the recently republished 1943 book Darkness over Germany.
Published during World War II, Amy Buller's Darkness over Germany offers a fascinating insight into Nazi leaders and the radicalisation of young Germans in the late 1930s, with real resonance in the 21st century.
It recounts candid conversations that Buller had with people in Germany in the run-up to the World War, on National Socialism and the rise of what Buller came to regard as a false extremist religion.
