All announcements are subject to Corona conditions and short-term changes

Update, September 2020:

  • The Clubroom will be restricted in numbers; distancing is required.
  • The theatre we had booked has been postponed to next year.
  • We therefore recommend that you book during the week before each Clubroom event (by phone or email to Susan) or be prepared to be turned away (sadly) if you come without reserving and we are already fully booked. Please cancel if you have reserved and find later that you cannot come.
  • We must provide to the VHS an exact room plan of each meeting with names, addresses, phone numbers and seating positions of all visitors. (Do not move the chairs.)
  • Therefore please arrive by 17:25 at the latest, as we must record any missing details and the seating positions.
  • We will disinfect the chairs and tables before the events.
  • Please wear a face mask whenever you are not seated, keep your distance (1.5m / 5') and follow the general VHS Corona rules displayed in the building.
  • Please keep your coat or jacket with you at your seat. The wardrobe must not be used.
  • Bring your own drinking water if you need it.

Please stay tuned and check here for new information.

Lest we forget – the fate of ordinary soldiers in the First World War

Saturday, 09 May 2015, 17:30h

(Please note the change of programme.)

Gillian Gissing, a speaker from the UK, talks about her commemorative journey to Ypres (Belgium) to retrace the route that her great-uncle took a hundred years ago. She visited the field where he died in action and attended a ceremony at the Menin Gate – which bears his name – a memorial to the Missing. Gillian will talk about the fate of her great-uncle as well as the experiences shared by thousands of ordinary soldiers on both sides of the trenches.

In cooperation with the International Education Centre of the VHS Düsseldorf ‘Die Brücke’
