Can the subaltern remember?
Dr’in. Katharina Rhein: Von der rechten Gewalt, die es nicht geben durfte. Erinnerungskulturelle Praxen in der BRD seit 1945
Who remembers the victims of right-wing violence, who names the perpetrators and their supporters? And who explicitly does not remember? Whose memory practice and expert knowledge is marginalized and whose narrative is enforced with the power of the dominant society? Even before the digital congress ANTIFASCHISM 2021, Dr. Massimo Perinelli and Dr. Katharina Rhein will give two substantive inputs into the topics of the congress. In their short presentations and in the subsequent conversation with Nissar Gardi, they identify some key issues that will be further explored on April 16 and 17.
Dr'in. Katharina Rhein: Von der rechten Gewalt, die es nicht geben durfte. Memory Cultural Practices in the Germany since 1945
In her input, sociologist and educator Katharina Rhein, co-director of the Research Center for Nazi Pedagogy at the University of Frankfurt, explores the question of why the long history of right-wing terrorism in the Federal Republic of Germany has left almost no traces in a dominant social culture of remembrance to this day. She outlines a narrative of lost youths and confused lone perpetrators, which can be rediscovered in ever new variants from early post-war Germany to the present. It is the legend of the hundreds and hundreds of »individual cases« that run through the history of the Federal Republic of Germany without a structural problem being recognized.
