It is with a heavy heart that we must cancel the events scheduled for the 75th anniversary of the Liberation.
In view of the spread of the coronavirus in Germany, it is with a heavy heart that we must cancel the events scheduled for the 75th anniversary of the liberation. The international commemoration marking the anniversary of the liberation of prisoners from the Neuengamme concentration camp is to be postponed to 2021.
Prof. Detlef Garbe: ‘The decision to cancel the commemorations marking this special anniversary was not one we took lightly. However, our foremost priority is the health of our guests. We very much hope to be able to extend our invitations once again next year.’

In view of the current situation (Coronavirus Pandemic) we cannot guarantee that all events scheduled for the 75th anniversary of the liberation will take place. According to current plans, the commemorative events will be held with a reduced programme. However, we have to bear in mind that there is a strong likelihood of the Hamburg city authorities imposing a general official ban on public events. Our intention is to postpone the international commemoration marking the anniversary of the liberation until next year.
