Historical Judgement. Magazine of the Deutsches Historisches Museum

Historical Judgement

The new magazine of the Deutsches Historisches Museum

Historical-political judgement is formed in the discussion of diverse, often opposing opinions: it is indispensable when we reflect on present-day events in the light of the past, recall past occurrences or want to research them. The Deutsches Historisches Museum understands itself as a place to strengthen this judgement; its magazine “Historical Judgement”, to be published for the first time in 2019, strives to establish itself in this sense as a space for debating comprehensive historical, philosophical, ethical and museological questions.

The magazine is a pointedly open and independent forum through which it hopes to elucidate how (historical) events can be seen from different perspectives and interpreted and judged in different ways – thus providing the possibility to critically examine one’s own judgement, to assess it on a comparative basis and to reflect on its place in the general discussion.

Starting from an outstanding, but also controversial object in the Permanent Exhibition of the Deutsches Historisches Museum – the Stone Cross of Cape Cross – the first issue of the magazine is devoted to the topic of “colonial objects and historical justice” and also contains, among other things, articles on the theory of democracy, on the relation between anti-Semitism and economy, and on the difference between historiography and narrative.
