The Second World War in Russian Memory from 1945 to the Present

Event Type: Branch

Takes Place: 5th February 2020

Time: 7.30pm

Venue: Queen's College, Taunton

Description: This talk will consider the impact of the Second World War on Russian attitudes and outlook and links will be made with recent developments under Putin. Known as ‘The Great Patriotic War' by Russians, its scale, by most means of measurement, was gigantic and, unsurprisingly, its effect on the national psyche has been massive. This talk was postponed last February.

How to book: There is no need to book though a school party or a large group might alert the organiser beforehand that they intend to come along.
