Most Excellent Tree: the changing image of the Cross through the centuries (BRIDFAS Lecture)

The British Decorative and Fine Arts Society of Hamburg e.V. (BRIDFAS) presents a lecture. The Cross is such a well-known symbol in Christianity, it is all too easy to take it for granted and to forget that, like many other symbols, it has developed and changed overtime. >>>

The British in Hamburg 1945 – 1958

Michael Ahrens describes the organisation and everyday life of the British occupation in Hamburg and its protagonists as well as British-German cooperation. The internal constitution of the “British community” in Hamburg, with all its priorities, conflicts and problems, is portrayed here for the first time, including the scantly researched first phase of the occupation in May 1945 and British organisation and infrastructure. The lecture, based on a recently published study (Die Briten in Hamburg. Besatzerleben 1945 – 1958, Michael Ahrens, Dölling und Galitz Verlag, 2011), describes varied aspects of the daily life and leisure activities of the members of the occupation, such as binational love life and contacts through clubs and associations. >>>
