Description This study compares autobiographical texts of H. M. Enzensberger and P. Schneider and tries to describe transitions between semantics of the so called skeptical generation (authors born 1925 – 1930, here G. Grass, M.Walser, R. Baumgart, J. Fest) and 68’ generation. It is based on a Schneider’s proclamation that an intellectual is obliged to admit their former errors and mistakes. Further it tries to clarify why Enzensberger was not going to fulfill this proclamation in his texts. This analysis puts Enzensberger’s autobiography ”Tumult“ (2014) into the intragenerational and intergenerational perspective. The main aim of this study is then to prove how much Enzensberger’s narrative strategy pairs with the strategy of his generation peers writing about their apprenticeship years under the rule of the Nazis.
