The Adam von Trott Lecture is a public lecture series in memory of the resistance fighter Adam von Trott zu Solz. It takes place annually in the winter semester since 2016 and is an integral part of the university's commemoration of its alumnus. The format was modelled on the established Adam von Trott Memorial Lecture at Mansfield College in Oxford, where the life and work of the resistance fighter has also been commemorated for many years.
Wir freuen uns sehr, dass wir für die kommende Adam-von-Trott-Lecture am 24. November 2022 den renommierten Historiker Timothy Garton Ash als Redner gewinnen konnten. Weitere Infos folgen bald.
