Abstract

In this article, I will develop an approach to utilizing narrative interviews with individuals who witnessed, became complicit in, facilitated, or benefitted from National Socialist violence. Drawing on a collection of recent interviews by a documentary filmmaker, I will demonstrate the importance of the context of their co-production and their socio-political and cultural embeddedness. By analyzing them as cultural artefacts of a particular time and place, I will identify a rise in anxiety in approaching Germans and Austrians on the side of persecutors and the appropriation of the figure of the contemporary witness or Zeitzeuge as practice, performance, discursive strategy, and subject position.
