PEN’s 11th Congress

Photograph of PEN members and associates at the 11th PEN International Congress in Dubrovnik, Yugoslavia, 1933, which was held on 28 May. PEN’s principles of unity and freedom of expression were tested by the rise of Nazism in Germany in the 1930s, and this Congress proved to be a turning point in PEN’s history when – under the leadership of H.G. Wells, president of PEN International (1933-36) – the German Centre’s membership in PEN was temporarily revoked until after the Second World War.

Le 11e Congrès de PEN

Photographie de membres PEN et d'associés lors du 11e Congrès de PEN International à Dubrovnik, Yougoslavie, qui s'est déroulé le 28 mai 1933. Les principes de solidarité et de liberté d'expression défendus par PEN ont été mis à l'épreuve par la montée du Nazisme en Allemagne, dans les années 1930, et ce Congrès est ainsi devenu un point tournant dans l'histoire de PEN lorsque, sous le présidence de H.G. Wells, président de PEN International (1933-36), l'affiliation du Centre allemand a été temporairement révoquée jusqu'à la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale.
