The Foundation of the GHI at the Intersection of Scholarship and Politics

Panel Discussion at the GHI

Panelists: Doris Bergen (University of Toronto), Jacob Eder (Friedrich Schiller University Jena), Scott Krause (UNC Chapel Hill), Hartmut Lehmann (Founding Director of the GHI). Moderated by Richard F. Wetzell (GHI)

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the GHI is presenting a panel discussion, featuring four historians, on the founding of the German Historical Institute, which opened its doors in 1987. Hartmut Lehmann, the GHIs first director, will offer his recollections on the opportunities and challenges involved in establishing the new Institute; Doris Bergen (University of Toronto), will share her experiences and insights as someone who has frequently cooperated with the GHI; Jacob Eder (Friedrich Schiller University Jena), author of Holocaust Angst (2016), will shed light on the place of the GHI in the transatlantic memory politics of the 1980s; Scott Krause (UNC Chapel Hill), whom the GHI commissioned to write a history of the Institutes founding, will report on his research, based on recently declassified files of the German Ministry of Research and Technology as well as Helmut Kohls chancellery.
