What remains of communism in the 21st century?

The lecture series will be organized jointly by the Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung Potsdam, the Center Marc Bloch in Berlin and the Federal Foundation for the Reworking of the SED dictatorship.

Their title quotes the French historian François Furet, who 22 years ago described the fall of communism as the "end of the illusion". One hundred years after the Russian October Revolution, the lecture series explores the after-effects of this illusion on today's understanding of politics, economy, society and culture. Each lecture discusses a leading term - "revolution", "capitalism", "nation", ... - the long-term effects of this central ideology and form of rule that are so central to the 20th century.

Admission is free. Registration is not required.
