Why are values and standards essential? How can we live up to ‘never again’ in an era this fragile? The keynote address of American historian Timothy Snyder on the Judenplatz square in Vienna will take place on Europe Day 2019 and simultaneously serve as a kick-off for the Wiener Festwochen, which will open on 10 May.
This format is scheduled to become an annual event: starting in 2019, a public lecture will be delivered on the occasion of Europe Day. The date and location are not incidental. Judenplatz square in Vienna is, in its very essence, a site of European history second to none. Every year, we will ask anew: which text is to be derived from this urban space today? In any case, it will be a text that rewrites the European narrative from which present-day Europe has emerged.
It is also a contribution seeking to anchor our idea of Europe, which has ensured peace for so many years, in the centre of the city and our awareness.
ERSTE Foundation has initiated a public lecture, which will be held annually at Judenplatz as of 2019, in honour of Europe Day. An event organised by Wiener Festwochen, ERSTE Foundation and the Institute for Human Sciences.
