Around the world, institutions dedicate themselves to keeping alive the debate on the crimes against humanity committed in the 20th century. Remembrance and historical work on the Shoah and the Second World War faces old and new challenges: How can information be conveyed when there is no one left to give an eyewitness account? How can society foster and sustain the interest of future generation(s)? How can we deal with political influence, and with nationalist or revanchist tendencies? What do the experiences from the “Age of Extremes” mean today and in a globalized world? The guests of Osnabrück Peace Forum discussed these issues and other questions concerning the past and the future of the culture of remembrance. The forum was held to mark the end of the exhibition “The Maly Trostenets Extermination Site: History and Remembrance” and its accompanying program.
