Historiography and Memory
Conflicts, Impositions, and Interventions

Helmut König

Deutsche Fassung


Historiography and memory denote different means of approach to the past. Historiography orients itself on truth and conceptual stringency, memory on fidelity, remembrance, and narratives. The different points of view, however, do not have to come into conflict with one another. They can complement and correct each other.
