Kurz­be­schrei­bung

While the dif­fe­ren­ces bet­ween the fascist and the colo­ni­al expe­ri­en­ces are indis­pu­ta­ble, inqui­ring into the simi­la­ri­ties in post-fascist and post-colo­ni­al resti­tu­ti­on prac­ti­ces and dis­cour­ses appe­ar cru­cial to bet­ter under­stand not only the poli­ti­cal rele­van­ce of heri­ta­ge and its role in memo­ry- and nati­on-buil­ding, but also the per­sis­tence of anti-Jewish and racist ste­reo­ty­pes in the post-1945 world order and the recur­rence of resti­tu­ti­on moti­ves in pre­sent-day natio­na­list propaganda.
