This lecture addresses the role of historians in the interplay of nationalism, memory and commemoration in East Asia and Europe after the Second World War. It will discuss how and why the history of the Second World War still plays a very important role both in Europe and in East Asia, how it is often used as a political tool, and how the end of the Cold War influenced international and national politics and the perception of the past.
