"Since individual memory as well as the past ‘itself’ are inaccessible, external, timeless representations of past events serve as proxies and educational means to es- tablish a stable notion of historical fact — on the level of the universal (like the state) or the local (like a family). History as a science maintains a distinct skepticism toward the idea of consistent history and holds that the historical is characterized by contingency regarding the past events, their mediation and their interpretation today.6"
