Confronting Race and the Memory of Evil

As the western world struggles with legacies of racism and colonialism – from national populism, racial violence, responses to immigration and debates around monuments and reparations – Susan Neiman argues that we have much to learn from Germany about confronting the evils of the past.

Neiman, who grew up as a white girl in the segregated American South during the civil rights movement, is a Jewish woman who has spent much of her adult life in a Berlin still coming to terms with its Nazi past. She uses this unique perspective to combine philosophical reflection, personal history and conversations with both Americans and Germans who are grappling with the evils of their own national histories.

What can we here in Bristol learn from the Germans and indeed other nations that are grappling with the evils of their own national histories?
