Experts reveal how World War I still reverberates

What can we do to avoid a recurrence of what happened 100 years ago? And how can art help people to recover from traumatic experiences?

As part of the Masterpiece Week built up around Benjamin BRITTEN’s War Requiem, an international panel—including Ambassador Rüdiger LUDEKING, Rector Jörg MONAR, Professor Olivier COSTA and College of Europe student Gavin DEWAR—looked for answers. War poet Wilfred OWEN’s poignant poems read by College students gave us food for thought along the way.
