We are pleased to invite you, together with the Inge Deutschkron Foundation and the German Resistance Memorial Center, to the lecture by Prof. Dr. Michael Wildt on September 21st at the Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand.
The discussion about an appropriate culture of remembrance for National Socialism and the Holocaust has strongly occupied many people over the past two years. The question of the uniqueness of the Holocaust plays a central role in this context. Berlin historian Michael Wildt will illuminate in his lecture how the judgment that the murder of European Jews was unique has prevailed and what assessments current Holocaust research has reached.
Michael Wildt (*1954) was a professor of German history in the 20th century with a focus on National Socialism at Humboldt University in Berlin until 2022. His recent publications include: “Ambivalenz des Volkes. Der Nationalsozialismus als Gesellschaftsgeschichte” (Ambivalence of the People: National Socialism as Social History), Suhrkamp Verlag 2019, and the book “Zerborstene Zeit. Deutsche Geschichte 1918 bis 1945” (Fractured Time: German History 1918 to 1945), C.H.Beck Verlag, 2022. He was awarded the Historical College Prize in 2022 for this book.
