The International Youth and Students for Social Equality (IYSSE) at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany is running in student elections taking place at the end of January.

One hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War, and seventy-five years after the outbreak of World War II, the German elites are once again preparing for war.

By seeking to downplay and relativize the crimes of the past, professors at Humboldt University are playing a central role in the campaign to revive German militarism.

This video explains how the IYSSE is fighting to turn the student election into a campaign against war and in defense of historical truth.
