The German Federal Agency for Civic Education (bpb) is inviting participation in the history festival "War or Peace. Crossroads of History 1918 | 2018" which will take place in Berlin from 17 – 21 October 2018. The event marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and links numerous workshops to a varied cultural programme.
