The LRE Conference is an important element of the LRE Forum, with which we hope to inform, inspire and connect. Held on Thursday, February 7th, 2019, it will reunite all of the LRE’s members, network, stakeholders, and the general public at Claridge, in Brussels, Belgium. With every conference we aim to give an update on the LRE’s activities, to inform participants about upcoming projects, and to provide interesting in-depth presentations and panel discussions. We try to prepare a programme with as many interesting speakers as possible.

With the current passing of the last eyewitnesses of the war, the interplay between history and memory has become even more significant. As such, the conference aims to inspire further work and forge innovative directions in keeping the memory of the Second World War alive – now, and for the future.

From engaging historians like Prof. Dr. Sönke Neitzel, to high-level politicians like Frans Timmermans, the LRE Conference invites dynamic speakers, and offers attendees the opportunity to engage and participate in important debates surrounding historical memory, the legacies of Word War II, and contemporary issues related to both.

The LRE is also a network organization, and one of the key goals of the Conference is the opportunity to connect with a large range of international partners, all working on WWII heritage. Consisting of museums, tourism boards, tour operators, travel service providers, governments, veteran organization, WWII heritage organizations, European Parliament members, and universities, and many other organizations.

Registration for the LRE Conference will be open in September.

The LRE Conference will be held at the Claridge, in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday February 7, 2019.

Address: Chaussée de Louvain 24, 1210 Brussels.
