Volker Benkert is an assistant professor in the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University. His research focuses on the impact of sudden regime change on biographies after both totalitarian regimes in twentieth-century Germany. He is the author of The Last Children of Socialism: Biographies of East Germans Born Around 1970, and the editor of two volumes on generational history and German-American relations since 1945. His current research focuses on memory of the Nazi past in German film, which despite great strides to acknowledge the horrors of the Holocaust still includes highly apologetic and redemptive narrative traits.
