About this book

It is the aim of this volume to investigate how academic practices of Memory Studies are being applied, adapted, and transformed in the countries of East-Central Europe and the former Soviet Union. It affords a new, startlingly different perspective for scholars of both Eastern European history and Memory Studies.

Reviews

'The contributors to this volume explore the difficult challenges facing Europe in reaching common understandings of very different historical memories of Holocaust and Gulag. The editors have brought together scholars who cross the boundaries of humanistic disciplines. Above all, they have found scholars who have been brave enough to learn about the other half of Europe.' - Mark von Hagen, Arizona State University

'A compelling volume that powerfully challenges the Western canon of Memory Studies to define a new age of cultural memory in the East.' - Andrew Hoskins, Editor-in-Chief, Memory Studies
