As stated, the objective of the telethon is to present a modern European vision of the Second World War, as well as to warn of a new threat to peace in Europe. Therefore, in parallel to the historical reflection, we will focus on the current challenges: on a new war with which Ukraine is confronted, on the conditions of peace, the fight against a pandemic and the suspension of civil liberties which accompanies it and the violation of human rights.
