Encounters at the Bosphorus. Turkey during World War II - opis książki:
The following contributions were first presented at an international conference, Encounters at the Bosphorus: Turkey during the Second World War, held in Wroclaw and Krzyzowa on 28-30 September 2007. This occasion celebrated the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Helmuth James von Moltke and it was arranged by the "Krzyzowa" Foundation for Mutual Understanding in Europe, the Willy Brandt Centre for German and European Studies at the University of Wroclaw and the Kreisau Initiative in Berlin. Support was also given by the Ulkiumen Sarfati Society in Cologne.
Why this picture of Turkey during the Second World War? And why this conference in Krzyzowa, in memory of Helmuth James von Moltke?
During the Second World War it was at Kreisau, the Moltke family`s Silesian estate, that a group of German friends involved in resistance against National Socialism met together on three occasions. Later they would become known as the Kreisau Circle. Today Kreisau is called Kizyzowa and it is part of Poland. It is now a meeting place and a memorial to those who resisted dictatorship in Europe during the last century.
The political thought of the Kreisau Circle in respect of the European question altogether actually remains an inspiration. Its members developed constitutional plans for a European federal state in the post-war period. But in the very fabric of their resistance the circle sought to create a network of responsible, committed individuals, drawn from different social groups and standing together for democratic and humanistic values.
