The First World War - Rethinking Remembrance
11 Oct 2018, 18:30 - 20:00
- The Scottish Parliament, Horse Wynd, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP
The First World War established patterns of remembrance for those killed in war which were novel at the time. A century later, none of those taking part in observance ceremonies have any conscious memory of the events they are marking – and none actually fought in the war. Join our chair Magnus Linklater, The Times, and panellists Professor Sir Hew Strachan FBA, School of International Relations, University of St Andrews; Jenny Waldman, Director, 14-18 Now; and Lucy Kentish, Never Such Innocence exhibition, to discuss how, why and if wars should be remembered.
