On September 11th, Blue Shield Germany organised an event entitled ‘The Civil Defense Concept – An Opportunity for the Protection of Cultural Property’. The event saw three speakers shed light on the requirement for the protection of cultural property in accordance with the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict and how it relates to civil defence.
Those who spoke on the issue included Blue Shield Germany’s very own Susann Harder, President of the German Blue Shield National Committee, Dr. Bernhard Preuss, Commissioner for the Protection of Cultural Property according to the Hague Convention at the Federal Office for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief, and Alexander Gatzsche, and Lieutenant Captain from the German Institute for Defense and Strategic Studies.
