The environment – despite the way we are used to thinking about it – was not and is not a passive background for historical processes and events. Going beyond the anthropocentric perspective allows us to see nature as an actor, witness and co-participant of history, and landscape to be read as a living archive in which traces of past events are recorded. The violent practices that were applied to people in the 20th century not only had an impact on the environment, but also have their roots in the modern attitude to nature.
