In these challenging times of political change and contest, and passionate belief and debate - Brexit and Remain, war, poverty and refugees, pro- and anti-Trump supporters, news and fake news reporting, myths, censorship and memories - a fascinating opportunity to explore the interrelationships between historical and contemporary struggles for power, and notions of invasion, occupation and resistance, both in WW2 in Europe, and beyond.
