Evolution of Memory: Volume I. By Ruth Hanna Sachs.
Volume I traces the evolution of Wittenstein's alleged participation in White Rose resistance from his earliest days of speaking and writing about it in 1947/48, then in the 1980s, to its current state.
Ruth Hanna Sachs ably demonstrates how Wittenstein's "memory" has evolved as scholarship has improved. Things he didn't know, or "remembered" incorrectly in the late 80s and early 90s? Suddenly he gets them "right" - after researchers have written about those topics.
Uses actual words, documented for everyone to see and hear. Side by side comparisons make for convincing arguments! It becomes painfully clear that Wittenstein was not a member of the White Rose, and that his many essays and speeches whitewash a questionable past.
This volume is the first in a series. The other volumes will focus on historical revisionism in the works and words of Franz Josef Mueller and Inge Aicher-Scholl.
