On Chance and Necessity

  • Denis Peschanski
Chapter
Part of the The Holocaust and its Contexts book series (HOLC)

Abstract

It would be simplistic to assume that Denis Peschanski became a historian of the Second World War in France as a consequence of his parents’ involvement in the French Resistance. However, to overlook or minimise this link would be equally simplistic or unwarranted. Four threads emerge from Peschanski’s ego-history: first, the importance of migrants and foreigners in French history; second, his longstanding commitment to politics, academic boards, the general public and the debates of his time; third, the pleasure of research; and fourth, the widening scope of his research, which, in recent years, has become increasingly collaborative and transdisciplinary to include neuroscience in various memory projects on WWII, 9/11 and the November 2015 Paris attacks.
