Germany enjoys an international reputation of doing exceptionally well in “dealing with its past”. Research conducted on the Holocaust and East Germany continues to grow, archive material is meticulously preserved and made accessible to the public, some perpetrators have been held accountable, and reparations are still being paid to this day. But is this the whole story? Is the international reputation in line with the assessment of experts on Germany today?
