Contemporary History

Dealing with historical topics in the Heinrich Böll Foundation conveys historical knowledge with the claim to understand society, politics and state constitution as historically conditioned. We promote the development of individual liberties, stimulate debates around the topic of "justice" and illuminate the interrelations of historical interpretations, politics of remembrance and current debates.

In contributions to the culture of remembrance, we try to give East and West German experience space.
