Wer darf jüdische Geschichte schreiben? Neue Positionen von Nachwuchswissenschaftler:innen

Racism is being discussed once again in Germany, especially among younger researchers. Political organisations of migrants, Black People and People of Colour repeatedly call for white, non-migrant people to listen to them, support them and reflect on their own whiteness. A society of plural and migrant life is already reality, and its history must be told now. But by whom? In this context, historians have a very special position, as they claim to be experts by virtue of their scientific standards. Similar questions are currently debated for the significance of the culture of remembrance and a Jewish presence in Germany. In the light of these debates: Is it necessary to renegotiate one’s own relationship as a historian to Jewish history? Especially as a non-Jewish person? Who is allowed to write Jewish history?
