‘German Zeitgeschichte from the Margins: The Post-War Experience of Nazi Victims’, The Annual Gerda Henkel Foundation Visiting Professorship Lecture, delivered by Professor Stefanie Schüler-Springorum:
‘Germany’s “coming to terms with the past” has been described and debated in historical writing and novels, in panel discussions and movies. With amazing uniformity, it has centred on the memories, fears, and wishes of those who had—voluntarily or not—belonged to the former German Volksgemeinschaft (People’s Community), while neglecting those groups who had been its victims. In my talk, I explore the post-war experiences and perspectives of these groups and ask what their stories might mean for the overall narrative of democratization and liberalization in the history of the Federal Republic.’
Chair: Professor Marc Baer, Head of International History at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
This lecture will take place on Tuesday 28 November at 6 pm at the London School of Economics and Political Science. For more information and to register, please click on the link below:
