"History & Memory, Volume 9", numbers 1 and 2 - more than a decade has passed since the Historians' Debate erupted in Germany. The themes that were at the heart of that impassioned controversy continue to pulsate in historical thinking about the National Socialist era. As a result of the Historikerstreit, increased credence is being lent to the issues of historicization, national identity, historical consciousness, the 'guilt question,' and collective memory, which heretofore had been considered tangential in the historiographical context of the Nazi epoch. This special double issue reconsiders the central themes that surfaced as a result of the debate: the problematic of historical representation of the Third Reich and the Shoah as it passes from living memory; the place of personal and collective memories in historical narratives; and the uneasy question of who should/can/may write whose history/ies. Several of the articles in this volume which is dedicated to Saul Friedlander on this sixty-fifth birthday, will related to Friedlander's rich oeuvre, which has probed many facets of this highly charges past. The contributions include: Carlo Ginzburg: "Shared Memories, Private Recollections"; Hans Mommsen: "Hitler's Reichstag Speech of 30 January 1939"; Dominick LaCapra: "Revisiting the Historians' Debate: Mourning and Genocide"; James Young: "Between History and Memory: The Uncanny Voices of Historian and Survivor"; Anson Rabinbach: "From Explosion to Erosion: Holocaust Memorialization in American Since Bitburg"; Dan Diner: "On Guilt-Discourse and Other Narratives: Epistemological Observations regarding the Holocaust"; and Jorn Rusen: "The Logic of Historicization: Metahistorical Reflections on the Debate between Friedlander and Broszat". The issue will also include essays by Steven E. Aschheim, Omer Bartov, Jose Brunner, Pierre Burrin, Sidra DeKoven Ezrahi, Eli Friedlander, Gertrud Koch, Otto Dov Kulka, Gavriel D. Rosenfeld, and Gulie NeOeman more
