From November on, I’m honored to join the Cemetery of the March Fallen‘s newly constituted Board of Trustees. Located in Berlin Friedrichshain, the Cemetery is one of the major German sites of remembrance of both the 1848/49 and 1918/19 revolutions. Together with a wealth of other museums and memorials, it is part of the network Sites of Democratic History.

The Board advises the Cemetery on the overhaul of its permanent exhibition (a project that will be on the top of our agenda in the coming years) as well as on its many other activities (commemorations, lectures, workshops, concerts, guided tours, etc.).
