Hard to Be a God: Historians in the Face of Evil

Aurimas Švedas – Historians very often play secondary characters in novels – strange loners whose knowledge occasionally helps solve complicated cases involving robberies or murders.

They can also show us how contemporary society grapples with the past, history, and memory.
