Throughout the year many lectures, events, and publications were devoted to the founding of Freie Universität Berlin in 1948. Back then, many students who were influenced by the repressive atmosphere during World War II and the increasingly ideological orientation of the University of Berlin, which had been founded in 1810 and after the war found itself in the zone of the city occupied by the Soviet Union, were seeking academic freedom. The Latin terms Veritas, Justitia, Libertas, or truth, justice, and freedom, became the motto of the new university.
More than 1,300 people attended the anniversary celebration. Read the complete article here to find out more on:
