‘‘I’ in the Plural: A New Writing of History’, written by Annette Wieviorka, is the first essay in the ‘Writing the Contemporary Self’ section’ and focuses on personal stories of Second World War history. Aided by archives and interviews, Wieviorka produces a work that is part testimony, part historiography, and attempts to answer big questions, such as: What is the purpose of writing the history of a family? How should this history be written? What has made such writing possible now?
