Within research, I take up the endeavour to study ‘challenging’ topics with new perspectives, and develop new skills. Doing research with a multi-disciplinary approach and applying new, modern techniques in order to enable a larger public to see, study and understand the past. Learning to respect the past will – I am sure of it – help people to understand the importance of ‘now’, show respect and inspire them for the future. Ultimately, it leads to understanding that ‘history’ is ‘his story’ (or ‘her story’) and thus contributes to a greater understanding of other people’s motives and motivation in the past, present and future.
