Elbe Day, April 25, 1945, is the day U.S. and Soviet troops met at the Elbe River in Germany, marking an historic step toward the end of WWII in Europe.

On April 25, I participated in an online discussion about reviving the spirit of Elbe Day. Never was the revival of that spirit more important than it is today.

Among other things, we talked about attempts by militarists to characterize today’s proponents of peace as ‘far-left’ and ‘far-right’ extremists. The truth is that those who support the escalation of the existentially dangerous war in Ukraine are the true extremists. Those of us who call for diplomacy and peace are the moderates.

      Unfortunately, there was a problem with the sound for the first 11 minutes of the video. From that point on, the audio worked. Sorry for the confusion!
