Max von Laue lectures

In 2000, the DPG initiated a lecture series in honour of Max von Laue. The physicist and Nobel Prize winner, who was President of the German Physical Society from 1931 to 1933, was extraordinarily active in the field of human rights between 1933 and 1945. The Max von Laue Lectures take place within the framework of the Annual Meetings and are given by scientists who are distinguished by their strong political or social commitment.
