    Description: Offering viewers a filmic Vergangenheitsbewältigung of the German mountaineering past, the two recent features Nordwand (2008) and Nanga Parbat (2010) hark back to the 1920s German Bergfilm. While Nordwand features a mise–en–scène, character constellation, and plot strikingly similar to the earlier Bergfilme, Philipp Stölzl takes great care to imbue his film with an anti-Nazi message. Yet Stölzl's insistence upon an Alpine space stripped of complexities and contexts in combination with his fusion of historical facts and melodrama offers German viewers a less burdened and easily digestible approach to the past. In Nanga Parbat, Joseph Vilsmaier also presents a kind of filmic Vergangenheitsbewältigung of the German mountaineering past by representing mountaineering as an act of postwar rebellion in the spirit of 1968. By presenting free-spirited, morally upright, and ideologically untainted mountain men, both Nordwand and Nanga Parbat at once resume the moral and aesthetic continuum of the Bergfilm and tend to normalize the historically troublesome connections between mountaineering and Nazism. In this way, the films—albeit unwillingly—rehearse some of the same tropes that characterized the Bergfilm in the first place, staging the divide between nature and culture, or man and woman, as an eternal, ahistorical struggle.

    Description: Looking at three imagined depictions of Humboldt's Chimborazo climb—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's drawing "Höhen der alten und neuen Welt bildlich verglichen" (1807), Rainer Simon's DEFA film Die Besteigung des Chimborazo (1989), and Daniel Kehlmann's bestseller Die Vermessung der Welt (2005)—my essay compares these fictional representations with Humboldt's own narratives to examine the imaginative and ideological bent of each interpretation. While Goethe depicts Humboldt reconnoitering a new world that is a mirror image of the old, Simon portrays him as a passionate educator and revolutionary. This image clashes with Kehlmann's representation of an emotionless Prussian who merely measures the world with tedious determination. Kehlmann's novel formulates, structures, and gives closure to an event that Humboldt intentionally left open to the imagination. While Humboldt gave only cryptic descriptions of the climb, it is Kehlmann who "measures the world" in the sense that his text provides an accessible narrative of the Chimborazo climb.

    Description: Mountains have always stirred the human imagination, playing a crucial role in the cultural evolution of peoples around the globe and becoming infused with meaning in the process. Beyond their geographical-geological significance, mountains affect the topography of the mind, whether as objects of peril or attraction, of spiritual enlightenment or existential fulfilment, of philosophical contemplation or aesthetic inspiration. This volume challenges the oversimplified assumption that human interaction with mountains is a distinctly modern development, one that began with the empowerment of the individual in the wake of Enlightenment rationalism and Romantic subjectivity. These essays by European and North American scholars examine the lure of mountains in German literature, philosophy, film, music, and culture from the Middle Ages to the present, with a focus on the interaction between humans and the alpine environment. The contributors consider mountains not as mere symbolic tropes or literary metaphors, but as constituting a tangible reality that informs the experiences and ideas of writers, naturalists, philosophers, filmmakers, and composers. Overall, this volume seeks to provide multiple answers to questions regarding the cultural significance of mountains as well as the physical practice of climbing them.

Caroline Schaumann is Associate Professor of German Studies at Emory University.

    Description: This article poses that Ruth Klüger's Holocaust memoirs weiter leben: eine Jugend (1992) and Still Alive: A Holocaust Girlhood Remembered (2001) challenge an understanding of the Holocaust as a universal and eternal evil. In Klüger's two texts, the Holocaust is conceptualized and verbalized for two different audiences, a German and an American one. Instead of calling for universal lessons, Klüger engages each audience in a dialogue about the Holocaust that is based on the shared experiences of each culture. Tracing the evolution from weiter leben to Still Alive, I suggest that both texts speak to their time and their respective readership. Although somewhat tempered in its initial provocative tone, Still Alive emerges as a remarkable cultural translation that attempts to make the Holocaust relevant for an American audience by embedding it firmly in the American experience.
