((( LIVESTREAM ))) Verstehen Sie? - Disput im Stadtgarten

Fliegenschiss versus Moralkeule // Zum Umgang mit unserer Erinnerungskultur

Particularly in challenging times like the current Corona pandemic, certain issues are pushed far into the background. So also the culture of memory. Democracy is under pressure, especially in times of crisis. Especially then developments such as National Socialism, genocide and the Second World War must not be forgotten. Therefore we ask: How can we secure the future of memory? Current and future remembrance work is decisively shaped by the media. Historical content is shaped, changed and even determined by the digital world. So how do we oppose reinterpretations of history and how can we avoid routine remembrance?
On the podium, the history didactician Dr. Maria Galda and Dr. Dirk Lukaßen from the Museum Service in the NS-DOK will discuss this topic.
Moderated by Nadine Michollek

With his speech at the end of the Second World War, Richard von Weizsäcker initiated a turning point in German remembrance culture in 1985. While a focus of the preceding phase was the narrative of the German population's suffering from the defeat, the speech promoted an awareness of one's own perpetration and thus the confrontation with complicity. A paradigm shift that now, 40 years later, threatens to erode. Not to lose the achievements of historical enlightenment and critical analysis now, but to oppose current attempts to reinterpret them, means asking questions: How can we avoid routine remembrance, how can we confront attempts to reinterpret our historical counterparts and, in general, which values and how should an immigration society deal with its particular history?
