On 16 June 2015 Volker Wild gave a talk titled What does coming to terms with the past mean today? Notes on the meaning of monuments commemorating National Socialism. This lecture was given at the invitation of the Bielefeld branch of the Association Gegen Vergessen – Für Demokratie (Against Forgetting – For Democracy) and of the DGB (Trades Union) Working Group Zwangsarbeit in Bielefeld (Forced Labour in Bielefeld). It was given in connection with an exhibition about forced labour in Bielefeld with the title Unter Zwang (Under Compulsion). The text of the talk (in German) can be obtained from Volker Wild on request. Further information about the exhibition can be found on the organizers’ home page.
