The article is devoted to the peculiarities of consideration of the problem of historical consciousness of the youth in modern German philosophy. The article analyzes the basic models of historical consciousness of the youth, established in German philosophy and social sciences and humanities in the late XX and beginning of the XXI centuries. The comparative analysis of static and dynamic models was conducted. The article emphasizes the idea that the problem of historical consciousness of young people is of prime importance in the contemporary studies of historical consciousness . Historical consciousness of the youth is transforming into a self- concept from a separate aspect of the study of historical consciousness. The most important feature of all the attempts of philosophical understanding of the phenomenon of historical consciousness of young people in Germany is a close connection with pedagogy and didactics of history. The article notes that the focus on the narrative approach to the understanding of the nature, structure and features of the transformation of historical consciousness contributed to epistemological and psychological aspects of the studies of historical consciousness of young people, as well as to the desire to consider it especially in the individual context.
