All Quiet on the Eastern Front: War in Ukraine from 2015 to 2018

December 7, 2018 @ 11:00 am

A presentation by Tomasz Grzywaczewski, journalist from PolandThe conflict which erupted in eastern Ukraine lingers on. Officially it is peace, but when the night falls, gunfire starts again. On and on again. In the pain and suffering of the war, new unrecognized states are born near Donetsk and Lugansk. Since 2015 Tomasz Grzywaczewski, journalist from Poland, has been covering the different stages of the war in Donbas. From the fierce fights in 2015, to the obscure for the modern notion of warfare, trench war in 2018, he has been gathering the testimonies of people entangled in this never-ending conflict, stimulated by the re-emerging Russian empire. This is a story of how, using national feuds and historical resentments, former neighbors, friends and even family members can be drawn into bloody conflict. This is a story about how war becomes part of the human soul and causes it to rot. WHEN: Friday, December 7 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM WHERE: Daniel Morgan Graduate School 1620 “L” Street, NW Suite 700 Washington, DC 20036> FOR MORE INFORMATION: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/all-quiet-on-the-eastern-front-war-in-ukraine-from-2015-to-2018-tickets-52787595118?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
