The German Association for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy (DGPPN) invites you to the upcoming DGPPN Congress 2010 from 24 to 27 November 2010 at the International Congress Center (ICC) Berlin, Germany. One of the main topics will be “Psychiatry in National Socialism – Commemoration and Responsibility”. A number of events during this year’s congress are dedicated to the victims of violations of human right in the area of psychiatry: the Jewish and ‘socialist’ psychiatrists that were forced to emigrate, as well as the mentally and somatic ill that had to endure unspeakable suffering during the national-socialist regime. Central will be a memorial event for remembering all the people that had to suffer from the national-socialist rule under the participation of psychiatric institutions and psychiatrists in Germany. Additionally, an exhibit by Prof. Dr. Michael von Cranach during the entire meeting will remind of the suffering of the victims. This exhibit had already been shown during the 1999 World Congress of Psychiatry in Hamburg and has developed further since.
The DGPPN Congress is no longer just a national meeting place, but increasingly attracts international attention. Closely connected to this is the most important change in the program schedule, which had already been started last year: the International Track in English language.
