"Look back, think ahead"

histoCON:LINE

histoCON is an event series organized by the Federal Agency for Civic Education/Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb), which is designed to be a platform to share and discuss global perspectives on history and its relation to present and future. The aim is to discuss narratives about historical events, its continuing effects, and lessons that can be drawn from its history. The explicit intention is not only to commemorate the particular historical event but also to consider the implications for the present and future. Furthermore, it is intended to encourage young people from all over the world to get to know different perspectives of history, to question existing narratives, and to reflect on questions of war and peace in today’s world. The current situation, which has developed as a result of the novel corona virus, also raises questions about the official commemoration of the Second World War. The situation can be used to rethink commemoration. Remembrance days offer a constant, especially in times of crisis, but at the same time these days of remembrance are always criticised for only dealing with their history on the respective occasions, while for the rest of the year they only play a minor role. Following up the memory of World War II is an important signal that joint reflection on a peaceful future remains an important and responsible task, even outside of commemoration days. On this basis, there is now an opportunity to try out new, digital forms of remembrance.

histoCON ist eine von der Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (bpb) organisierte Veranstaltungsreihe, die als Plattform zum Austausch und zur Diskussion globaler Perspektiven auf die Geschichte und ihr Verhältnis zu Gegenwart und Zukunft dienen soll. Ziel ist es, Erzählungen über historische Ereignisse, ihre fortwährenden Auswirkungen und Lehren, die aus ihrer Geschichte gezogen werden können, zu diskutieren. Die ausdrückliche Absicht besteht nicht nur darin, des jeweiligen historischen Ereignisses zu gedenken, sondern auch die Auswirkungen auf die Gegenwart und Zukunft zu reflektieren. Darüber hinaus sollen junge Menschen aus aller Welt ermutigt werden, verschiedene Perspektiven der Geschichte kennen zu lernen, bestehende Erzählungen zu hinterfragen und über Fragen von Krieg und Frieden in der heutigen Welt nachzudenken. Die aktuelle Situation, die sich als Folge des neuartigen Coronavirus entwickelt hat, wirft auch Fragen zum offiziellen Gedenken an den Zweiten Weltkrieg auf. Wir glauben, dass die heutige Situation genutzt werden kann, um Erinnerung neu zu denken.
