Abstract:

A lecture delivered in November 1987. Describes the traditional representation of the Nazi phenomenon by historians before 1986, which dealt with historical responsibility, the nature of Nazi crimes, and overall perspectives of the period. Their point of view set the catastrophic and criminal dimensions at center stage, establishing a kind of moral consensus. The conservative historians (e.g. Hillgruber, Nolte) involved in the "historians' debate" aim at contextualizing the historical responsibility and thereby solving the issue of German identity, contending that Nazi extermination policies were not exceptional and that Nazi Germany fought a defensive war against the aggression of the Allies (especially the USSR). Another challenge to the traditional representation is a change in historical emphasis (e.g. Broszat's "historicization"). Discusses historiography and collective memory, pointing to the paradox that the further the Nazi epoch recedes in time, the more present it seems to become. Notwithstanding challenges to the traditional image, the rehabilitation of Nazism is unthinkable among historians.
