Working title research project:

'Dealing with the Past – Memories of National Socialism, World War II and the Holocaust in Great Britain.'

Project Outline:

The project investigates how images of the Second World War and the Holocaust are transmitted within British families. By conducting interviews with contemporary witnesses of the Second World War, their children and grandchildren, as well as group discussions with members of different age groups insights will be provided into how the Second World War is portrayed and interpreted in British families. Of particular interest is the tradition of images and opinions as well as the question how this relates to the more cognitive historical knowledge as it is taught in schools.
