    This paper (in Portuguese) presents a brief ‘case study’ of a successful social protest in Nazi Germany to raise some questions about the effects of certain kinds of spontaneous street protests and how they can have resonances and traces that evoke unsettled reactions generations later. There are many reasons for this: for example, the politics change, the context becomes clearer. It is also possible that some events become symptomatic carriers of a broader set of concerns and disputed ways of being, perhaps challenging other narratives of resistance (or non-resistance). That is, sometimes it might be hard to celebrate a protest not because it was corrupt, but rather because it calls into question the inaction of others. This can then become one of the issues around forgetting: if we recall what others did, it might make us wonder about the things we failed to do.
