The Heinrich Böll Foundation continues its series of events "Do you understand? Disput im Stadtgarten" and invites guests to a moderated discussion evening.

With his speech on the end of the Second World War in 1985, Richard von Weizsäcker initiated a turning point in the German culture of remembrance. 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 of 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?
