In times when wearing Soviet-themed T-shirts are deemed cool, when there are people who still find it possible to compare the EU to the USSR, it is of utmost importance to bring to light and remember the brutalities of the Soviet regime, to have an open discussion and to tell the stories of the victims in cinema and literature.

MEP Algirdas Saudargas, together with the Embassy of Lithuania to the Kingdom of Belgium and the Permanent Representation of Lithuania to the EU invite you to a debate on the Atrocities of the Soviet regime: contexts and narratives followed by the screening of the movie “Ashes in the Snow” based on award-winning best-seller book by Rūta Šepetys.

The debate speakers:

MEP Sandra Kalnietė

PhD Inga Zakšauskienė, Ass. Professor at History Department, Vilnius University,

PhD Philippe Perchoc, Policy Analyst at the European Parliament Research Service and invited professor at the College of Europe,

PhD Wim Coudenys, Ass. Professor at Faculty of Arts, KU Leuven.
