Die Gedächtnislosen: Erinnerungen einer Europäerin

“Die Gedächtnislosen” pleads with exemplary diligence for a continuation of mnemonic techniques so as to counteract the ethnic and nationalist tendencies. The author fuels the notion that right-wing populist currents in Europe can be explained by the way in which their own history after the Second World War was handled. By way of illustration, the Franco-German author who grew up in France connects her family story to the big picture. What is currently the welcoming culture in Germany is to her an expression of European humanism learned from history. The drawback of this proposition is evident throughout Europe: where collaboration was contested either late or hardly at all, slogans of right-wing populism became stronger and more out of control.
