24.01.2023: Students on an excursion in Dresden

On 24.01.2023, the Chair and the students of the Master's programmes "War and Conflict Studies" and "International War Studies" went on an excursion to Dresden, where they visited the Military History Museum of the German Armed Forces. The museum is one of the most important museums in Europe dealing with the causes and consequences of war and violence. At the same time, it offers many opportunities for exchange and debate about the role of the military and war in the past, present and future.
The students were given an insight into the history of the First and Second World Wars here with an overview tour of parts of the permanent exhibition. Prof. Dr. Sönke Neitzel also guided the group through the new special exhibition he co-curated, "War and Peace 2005-2021. The Bundeswehr in the Merkel Era."
Afterwards, the group had the opportunity to take a stroll through the city to get an impression of Dresden's diverse architecture and history.
The excursion was financially supported by the Friends of the Chair of Military History.
