Essay by Prof. Dr. Jacob Eder in Time Magazine

On Germany’s coping with the Nazi past

Jacob Eder is a historian and author whose interests include history and memory, transatlantic relations, humanitarianism, migration, and refugee aid. He has published books on the Holocaust with Oxford University Press and Wallstein and has written for The Atlantic, Haaretz, Süddeutsche Zeitung, taz, and Time Magazine. At the Barenboim-Said Akademie, he teaches the history of modern Europe.

In his recent essay published by Time Magazine, Eder approaches at an often-overlooked dimension of Germany’s coping with the past. He argues that although Germany is often praised for facing up its Nazi past and has established a broad consensus, the memory of the Holocaust is still up for debate – especially outside of the country’s metropolises.
