Abstract: »REGINA MÜHLHÄUSER (Hamburg) shifted the focus by stressing the socially constructed nature of victims and perpetrators. She used the example of the prevailing (West) German narrative of rape conducted by the Red Army in the aftermath of the Second World War, and outlined the political reasons for why only rape conducted by Soviet soldiers is remembered.« (Source: Kathleen Rother.
