I have always been interested in how we view and recall the past. This blog gives me a chance to record relevant newspaper reports, or comment on films and novels and non-fiction in which history and memory play a part. I also thought it might interest some other people to read what I have written, if only for information purposes. Most of what I comment on will be related to Germany, the country I have been researching for some time now. But I will also take the opportunity to comment on developments elsewhere.
