Description - A New Germany in a New Europe? by Todd Herzog
After the crimes of the Nazis, the Cold War and the subsequent division of Germany, the unification of Germany and of Europe, difficult yet vital questions arise. This volume of work is not a collection by like-minded "usual suspects". Instead, the editors have brought together radically different viewpoints and concerns. Richard van Weizsacker, former President of the Federal Republic of Germany, reflects on Goethe's legacy and the process of European Union, while the filmmaker Monika Treut addresses the fate of German cinema and the peril of "international oblivion". Each of the contributors, however, possess a passionate interest in what Germany is and is to become. Writing on Berlin's new Jewish Museum and other memorials, the state of multiculturalism in Germany, or future of German culture in a unified Europe, these voices lay before us the questions that face not only Germany but anyone concerned with Germany's history and the future of Europe.
