To mark the Franco-German Friendship Day on January 22, 2018, historians Etienne François from Freie Universität Berlin and Olaf B. Rader from the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities will address Europe and Franco-German history in a discussion at Freie Universität. The two historians edited an anthology that was recently published in France entitled Europa – notre histoire. L’héritage européen depuis Homère (Les Arènes, 2017). As part of a book presentation for this volume, they will explain the concept of the extensive and ambitious project and describe its genesis and reception in France.

The event is being held jointly by the Frankreichzentrum of Freie Universität Berlin and the Centre Marc Bloch of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin on the occasion of the 55th signing of the Franco-German Friendship Treaty – the Elysée Treaty – on January 22, 1963. The discussion will be moderated by Uwe Puschner (Friedrich Meinecke Institute, Freie Universität Berlin). It will begin at 6:15 p.m. in the Seminar Center of Freie Universität. The public is welcome to attend, and admission is free.
