How can memory culture be pluralized? What are positive histories of solidarity between victimized groups in Germany beyond the concept of Opferkonkurrenz? Memory Cultures 2.0. is now online foregrounding underrepresented voices with new approaches to 'Historikerstreit 2.0'. Why have histories of solidarity been sidelined if not forgotten and who did this narrative of oblivion serve? Why are histories often thought of as competing rather than as historically entangled, suggesting a hierarchy of victimhood when it comes to forms of commemoration? How should the memory landscape change in an increasingly multicultural society in which different minoritized groups relate differently to Germany’s past and demand their own forms of commemoration?
