For the injustice to which they were subjected, victims of the Second World War have demanded and continue to demand social recognition, symbolic and/or material "compensation", an elucidation of the crimes and a conviction of the culprits. "Discourses of Victim Associations" is a project of the Deutsch-Tschechische und Deutsch-Slowakische Historikerkommission (German-Czech and German-Slovak commission of historians) that is conducted in cooperation with the Collegium Carolinum. The examination focuses on victim groups of the Second World War as well as on the associations in which they were organized, which, after 1945, acted as protagonists in various ways, basing the legitimacy of their actions on their collective experiences.
