Mitte der 1990er Jahre geriet die Schweiz vergangenheitspolitisch ins Kreuzfeuer internationaler Kritik. Vor dem Hintergrund einer zunehmenden Universalisierung der Erinnerung an den Holocaust sah sich die Schweiz mit Fragen zu ihrer Rolle während des Zweiten Weltkrieges konfrontiert. Das jahrzehntelang gepflegte Geschichtsbild vom neutralen und humanitären Sonderfall wurde dabei grundlegend erschüttert. Eine Folge der Kontroversen um „Nachrichtenlose Vermögen“, „Nazigold“ und schweizerische Flüchtlingspolitik conflict die staatliche Einsetzung einer Unabhängigen Expertenkommission (UEK), die die Rolle der Schweiz während des Zweiten Weltkrieges historisch und juristisch aufarbeitete. Welche Auswirkungen diese vergangenheitspolitischen Debatten und die offiziellen Aufarbeitungsbemühungen auf das Geschichtsbild breiter Bevölkerungskreise hatten, blieb bislang unerforscht. Anhand von intergenerationell zusammengesetzten Gruppendiskussionen zeigt dieser Band nunmehr auf, wie heute die Zeit des Zweiten Weltkrieges und des Nationalsozialismus in der Bevölkerung vergegenwärtigt wird. Die Studie bietet Einblick in ein Erinnerungsgeschehen, das bisher kaum ins Blickfeld der Forschung gerückt ist.

German Christmas used to be supposedly natural, a made of the iciness solstice rituals of pagan "Teutonic" tribes, the get together of the start of Jesus, and the age-old customs that outlined German personality. but, as Joe Perry argues, Germans extensively utilized those annual celebrations to contest the private values that held the German group jointly: religion, kin, and love, definitely, but in addition civic accountability, fabric prosperity, and nationwide belonging.

Perry deals a detailed research of the impression of buyer tradition on well known occasion and the conflicts created as non secular, advertisement, and political professionals sought to manage the holiday's that means. through unpacking the intimate hyperlinks among family social gathering, well known piety, purchaser wants, and political ideology, Perry concludes that family members joyful celebration used to be imperative within the making and remaking of public nationwide identities.

This publication used to be turning into too influential to stay out of print for lengthy, and its first sentence by myself --"sovereign is he who makes a decision at the exception"-- has most likely been brought up through extra students than have ever really learn the second one sentence. nonetheless, notwithstanding prompted by way of second-hand readings of Schmitt, such a lot students have the ability to get quite a lot correct approximately Schmitt's thesis, if in basic terms since it is easy, aphoristic and open-ended. no matter what its merits-- and there are many-- there's a lot to take exception with in Schmitt's ebook and within the suggestions it has stimulated. The proposal of "the exception" calls for really rigorous rationalization since it has too frequently been increased to the political-theological realm, been imbued with a fierce alterity or normless negativity, and someday de-secularized as an an identical of a miracle. a part of this can be conflation of 2 senses of "exceptional": (1) "Norm vs. exception", that's a juridical contrast; and (2) the inspiration of "ordinary vs. extraordinary," that is extra of a cultural or aesthetic contrast. the 1st of these-- the extra banal definition-- is the one who is proper to felony concerns [OED: "The motion of excepting (a individual or factor, a selected case) from the scope of a proposition, rule, etc.; the kingdom or truth of being so excepted. whatever irregular or strange; contrasted with the rule"]. In political-theological phrases, in spite of the fact that, "The exception in jurisprudence is similar the miracle in theology." Carl Schmitt, Political Theology: 4 Chapters at the suggestion Of Sovereignty (Cambridge: MIT Press, 1985), 36. this can be tremendous as an analogy, yet Schmitt-- somewhere else rigorous approximately keeping apart politics, aesthetics, economics, etc.-- the following drags "the miracle" again into the juridical realm. during this method Schmitt's idea that "Sovereign is he who makes a decision [in and upon] the nation of exception" should be rephrased in Weberian phrases because the "charismatic" unheard of: a "certain caliber" "not available to the standard person." the non-public traits distinct additionally declare that this individual, in outstanding occasions could be published to be the genuine sovereign. This lends itself to the unreflective conflation of the 2 senses of the note "exception" and inflects sovereignty with the cult of air of mystery.
