La Germania sì che ha fatto i conti con il nazismo

Tommaso Speccher



Starting in 1945, passing through the student movements of ‘68 and arriving at 1989 and today’s memorials, this book recounts key biographies, emblematic events and exemplary debates, showing how the Nazi past affected post-war Germany like the proverbial ‘elephant in the room’, generating an unspoken and continuous tension, but only occasionally producing an effective assumption of responsibility.
