Description: The aim of this conference is to explore key moments during the two World Wars at which British and French experience and understanding of events differed, and which have been the cause of continuing misunderstanding, resentment and prejudice. We shall concentrate on moments whose memory continues to affect perceptions today, and part of the aim is precisely to combat misunderstanding, resentment, prejudice, and perhaps above all forgetfulness
