Being able to deal with the past, means to get a needed insight, to understand the risks of Modern Societies; dealing with and confronting “conflicting memories”, helps to develop a multiperspective view on today’s societies, as well, and their foundings. It enables us to seek for peaceful means of dealing with current conflicts, and to develop an open-minded view, together with different partners.
