Military History Live event in Leicester

An Alumnus of the University who was involved in the establishment of the Centre for Hate Studies at Leicester is launching his book at a Military History Live event in Leicester.

Julian Harrison, who was a member of the Steering Group that supported the establishment of The Centre for Hate Studies in the Department of Criminology, will be launching his book "Suspended Disbelief: Reflections on the Holocaust" .

Suspended Disbelief relates the author’s own perspective and reflective thinking. He tells stories that he sees as significant, many of which will be relatively unknown, stories based on where he has been in person and where he would like us all to go, as communities heeding the lessons of the Holocaust and, indeed, of all genocides.

Leicester’s ‘Military History Live’ event takes place on Saturday 18 June at Adult Education (Belvoir Street) and provides an opportunity to explore the conflicts from the past that shape our world today.

Covering the last 500 years, ‘Military History Live 2016’ provides an opportunity to discover Leicester’s involvement in these conflicts, the part played by its soldiers and those left behind on the home front.

There are exhibitors covering many conflicts and the opportunity for ‘cafe conversations’ about life on the frontline, the home front for those waiting for news, internment, conscientious objectors, prisoners of war, those shot at dawn for desertion or cowardice in the First World War and PTSD and many more.
