A German Reckoning: The 60th Anniversary of World War II examines German culture and history on the occasion of this anniversary year. German-born New York artist Hans Haacke presents his current Reichstag installation project Der Bevölkerung; critic and scholar James Young discusses the newly inaugurated Berlin Holocaust Memorial by Peter Eisenman; historian Atina Grossmann examines the relationship between the current debate over the memory of the war and the mid-1990s debate over Daniel Goldhagen's Hitler's Willing Executioners; and historian Anson Rabinbach evaluates the recent discourse of normalization. Noah Isenberg, Chair of The New School Department of Humanities, moderates.
