I am struggling to find a punching German translation for this synonym.
The context is about the carreer of an aging actor, the full sentence is: That is to say history as in " history making ", not as in " buying the farm ".
Explanation: If a bit of "artistic license" is OK, maybe you could try to represent the various connotations of "history" in German by using "Geschichte sein" (for "buying the farm" in the sense of "being a thing of the past) and "Geschichte schreiben" (making history).
