Abstract


”Europe can only be viewed as pluralistic.” Bartosz Dziewanowski-Stefańczyk interviews Heinrich August Winkler

Abstract

This interview was conducted in the context of the recently published fourth volume of History of the West by Heinrich August Winkler. In light of Tony Judt’s contention that the postwar period in European history had come to an end in 1989, Winkler was asked where he would place this caesura. If we accept the change to 1989, does that solve all problems caused as a result of World War II? Does the conflict in Ukraine not count as one of the unresolved issues of the war? The interview also deals with similarities between the situations in Eastern and Western Europe in the initial postwar years. Regarding the issue of 1945 as a definite break in history, Winkler discusses which earlier processes were continued through and after the war and which cultural changes were triggered by both world wars. He also addresses the importance of the World War II and postwar experiences in terms of the creation of the so-called “normative project of the West”. The interview concludes with Winkler’s deliberations on the common European memory of the Second World War, which is – like Europe itself – pluralistic.
