Der Dreiklang von Heimat, Vaterland und Europa stellt die Dimensionen des politischen Wirkens des Europapolitikers Hans-Gert Pöttering dar. Von der ersten Direktwahl 1979 bis zu seinem Ausscheiden im Jahr 2014 gehörte der CDU-Politiker dem Europäischen Parlament an, dessen Präsident er von 2007 bis 2009 war. In dieser Funktion, aber auch als Vorsitzender der EVP/ED-Fraktion zwischen 1999 und 2007, war Pöttering u.a. maßgeblich an der Erweiterung der Europäischen Union um die mittel- und osteuropäischen Staaten sowie am Zustandekommen des Vertrags von Lissabon beteiligt. Politische Weggefährten aus Niedersachsen, Deutschland und Europa, die Pöttering in den vergangenen vier Jahrzehnten begleitet haben, würdigen in dieser Festschrift sein Engagement für die Einigung Europas in Frieden und Freiheit.

The discourse of Heimat, meaning homeland or roots, has been a medium of debate on German identity between region and nation for at least a century. Four phases parallel Germany's discontinuous history: Heimat literature as a response to modernization and to regional tensions before the First World War; the inter-war period when Heimat divided into racist ideology, left-wing opposition, and inner resistance to the Third Reich; a post-war dialectic between escapist 1950s Heimat films and right-wing claims to the lost lands in the East to which anti-Heimat theatre and films in the 1960s and 1970s were a response, with the urban Heimat in GDR films adding a socialist twist; regionalism and green politics in the 1980s and German identity beyond Cold War divisions. A key point of reference in current debates on German history, Heimat looks likely to continue in postmodern and multicultural mode.

West German filmmakers have tried to repeatedly over the past half-century to come to terms with Germanyâe(tm)s stigmatized history. How can Hitler and the Holocaust, how can the complicity and shame of the average German be narrated and visualized? How can Auschwitz be reconstructed? Anton Kaes argues that a major shift in German attitudes occurred in the mid-1970sâe"a shift best illustrated in films of the New German Cinema, which have focused less on guilt and atonement than on personal memory and yearning for national identity. To support his claim, Kaes devotes a chapter to each of five complex and celebrated films of the modern German era: Hans Jürgen Syberberg's Hitler, a Film from Germany, a provocative restaging of German history in postmodern tableaux; The Marriage of Maria Braun, the personal and political reflection on postwar Germany with which Rainer Werner Fassbinder first caught the attention of American and European audiences; Helma Sanders-Brahms's feminist and autobiographical film Germany, Pale Mother, relating the unexplored role of German women during and after the war; Alexander Kluge's The Patriot, a self-reflexive collage of verbal and visual quotations from the entire course of the German past; and, finally, Edgar Reitz's Heimat, a 16-hour epic rendering of German history from 1918 to the present from the perspective of everyday life in the provinces. Despite radical differences in style and form, these films are all concerned with memory, representation, and the dialogue between past and present Kaes draws from a variety of disciplines, interweaving textual interpretation, cultural history, and current theory to create a dynamic approach to highly complex and multi-voiced films. His book will engage readers interested in postwar German history, politics, and culture; in film and media studies; and in the interplay of history, memory, and film.
