The newest kuš! anthology, š! #23 'Redrawing Stories from the Past', is about one of the darkest periods of our past. It contains stories about victims of National Socialism based on incidents and biographies found and researched during the project “Redrawing Stories from the Past”. The stories illustrate a rather unseen, forgotten or even marginalized part of our common memory and give voice to the lives of people who have not been heard before, thus offering a new perspective and better understanding of our present as well.
As Daniel Elkin writes in his review of this issue: "Given the events of the recent days and the backlash it has engendered, these are not only stories of A time, they are stories of OUR time."
