It is with great sadness that we announce that Prof. Vytautas Landsbergis won’t be able to join us for the DCW Project Final Event due to health problems. We cannot but wish him a fast recovery, hoping there will be another chance to meet him and listen to his words.
Anyway, we are at the same time very glad to announce that Mr Toomas Hiio, Board Member of Estonian Institute of Historical Memory, has accepted to replace him.
Mr Hiio, whose research focuses on World War Two and crimes against humanity, has also served as an executive secretary of the Estonian International Commission for the Investigation of Crimes Against Humanity (1998–2008), and as an adviser for the President of the Republic of Estonia, Mr. Lennart Meri (1998-2001).
In his speech “Towards a Common European Remembrance Policy” he will focus on the similarities and differences of the perception of mostly contemporary history in different countries.
Join us on December 10th at Cervantes Institute to meet him and our other distinguished speakers!
