Search & Research, Lectures and Papers 4: The Invention of “Functionalism” - Josef Wulf, Martin Broszat, and the Institute for Contemporary History (Munich) in the 1960s

Nicolas Berg


Based on his lecture at Yad Vashem, this study by Nicolas Berg describes early postwar efforts to “explain” National Socialism, soon supplanted by structural approaches known as “functionalism”, a highly popular concept in the 1970s. He presents the history of the concept, its concrete German context, impact and interpretation, and proposes a new model.
