'Die bemerkenswerte öffentliche Reaktion auf den Film Holocaust in Westdeutschland ruft Fragen nach dessen Bedeutung für die politische Kultur in Deutschland hervor. War die Serie der Hauptgrund für den Wandel in der Beziehung zur Nazi-Vergangenheit? Der Autor konzentriert sich auf den kulturellen und politischen Kontext, bevor im Januar 1979 'Holocaust' ausgestrahlt wurde. Entgegen verbreiteter Überzeugungen argumentiert er, dass die Auswirkungen des Films stark von zeitlichen Umständen abhing, die schnell in Vergessenheit gerieten - gerade aufgrund seines außergewöhnlichen Erfolgs. Dieser vorausgehende strukturelle Wandel machte den so genannten 'Holocaust-Vorstoß' möglich.' (Autorenreferat) 'The remarkable public response to the TV series Holocaust in West Germany raises questions concerning the significance of this event for the historical culture. Was it the main reason for the change in dealing with the Nazi past? The author focuses on the cultural and political contexts before Holocaust was aired in January 1979. Against wide-spread conviction he argues that the effect of the series depended on contemporary conditions which, however, soon fell into oblivion - straight because of the extraordinary success. This previous structural change made the so-called 'Holocaust thrust' possible.' (author's abstract)
