DREAMS OF PEACE & FREEDOM - A SONG CYCLE
BY SUE CASSON
PERFORMANCE AND RECORDING
IN HIS OWN WORDS - DAVID MAXWELL FYFE AT NUREMBERG AND STRASBOURG
BOOK AND ON-LINE
DOCUMENTARY FEATURE ON THIS STORY AND ITS HISTORY,
AND THIS HISTORY AND ITS STORY
Through Project 2020, Kilmuir Papers strives to tell as many people as possible, favouring young people, the story of David Maxwell Fyfe's journey
from prosecutor at Nuremberg to champion of human rights in Strasbourg
before the end of 2020.
2020 is the 75th anniversary of IMT Nuremberg
and the 70th anniversary of ECHR in Strasbourg.
We want to jog people's memories about the pressing value
of universal human rights. It is vital to understand that modern human rights
grew out of a forensic study of the failure and barbarism
of the Nazi totalitarian regime. That these were lessons learnt and not dreamt up.
Working with our partners at English Cabaret we want to capitalise on our existing work, in particular performances of Dreams of Peace & Freedom,
and extend our reach through film and further publication of the journey
in Maxwell Fyfe's own words.
IN THE PERIOD LEADING UP TO 2020
WE WILL PUBLISH THE STORY IN HIS OWN WORDS,
PERFORM THE SONG CYCLE TO TOUCH MANY,
FILM AND RECORD THE SONG CYCLE TO REACH MORE,
PLACE THIS HISTORY AT THE HEART OF THE CAMPAIGN TO MAINTAIN
FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS THROUGHOUT EUROPE
