Im Namen der Würde. Eine deutsche Geschichte

In the organizer's words:

The Basic Law guarantees human dignity - an abstract promise from which very specific demands have been derived over the years. While the early Federal Republic was concerned with distancing itself from the National Socialist dictatorship, human dignity was later increasingly invoked.

In an interview with Dr. Henning Borggräfe (NS-DOK) about his recently published book,Prof. Dr. Habbo Knoch (University of Cologne) explains how the idea of inviolable human dignity developed even before 1945 and how, despite all the different interpretations, it became the most important agreement among Germans.
