Der schönste Tag

The Last Dialogue

Fabian Eder

“Austria – First Victim of National Socialism” – is the core element in the self-image of the country that first welcomed Hitler with waving flags and arms raised up to heaven: nation, people and race.
Monuments and commemorative events… with the helplessness of blunt memory in between. What to do with the lie, where to go with the pain, and why again? The war of narratives begins with the liberation of the concentration camps, with the mountains of corpses. One last journey with those who were there. What story do we tell – and which one do we want to hear?
