1938-2008: Legacies and Lessons in post-war Austria
Over the last decade, important new research has been undertaken on Austrian history during the period 1938 - 1945 and the post-war era. This has included the topics of expropriation in Austria during the Nazi regime, restitution and compensation efforts after 1945, Austrian resistance groups and post-war justice for crimes committed during the regime. Through this series of public lectures, organised by the Austrian Embassy London, in co-operation with the Wiener Library and the Austrian Cultural Forum London, eminent Austrian scholars and experts have presented this new research and shed some light on the questions raised.
