Andrew J Chandler, a member of one of the SY2E – Remain in the EU groups analyses the parallels drawn by Boris Johnson between Hitler’s Nazi Germany and the European Union in his blog quoting history and historians.
Andrew concludes by saying:
There is therefore no analogy to be drawn between the Nazi conquest of Europe and anything that happened before or since, and certainly not the development of free trade areas, democratic institutions and diplomatic initiatives across a broadening European Union. However, the warnings from history of inter-war Europe are clear, and ones which we fail to heed at our peril. They tell us that we must keep building new economic, social, political and diplomatic frameworks across the continent which can withstand future aggression and lead to permanent peace between the diverse nations which compose it.
