European Parliament Endorses Platform

RNH is a member of the Platform of European Memory and Conscience which seeks to keep alive the memory of the victims of totalitarianism, communism and Nazism. RNH Academic Director Professor Hannes H. Gissurarson has given lectures at Platform conferences and contributed to its publications. On 19 September 2019, the European Parliament adopted a resolution about the importance of European remembrance for the future of Europe, urging the European Commission to support the Platform. In the resolution, the European Parliament emphasised the annual Day of Memory for the Victims of Totalitarianism, 23 August. It was on this very day in 1939 that Hitler and Stalin made their Non-Aggression Pact, signed in Moscow and dividing up most of Europe between them and starting the Second World War.
