This volume offers a strong Central European perspective on the politics of remembering and the politics of forgetting in the 20th century, and on interpretations of ourselves and the world around us in the 21st century. The promise to remember everything accompanied by the ability to obliterate anything from the face of the earth, or the promise to describe history just like it was, coupled with a modern obsession to forge history or to whitewash and rewrite it, appear as the contradictions of modernity that may be pushed to the limit at any time. The book offers Italian, French, Hungarian, Slovenian, Lithuanian and other European academic and cultural perspectives on this multidimensional phenomenon

Abstract

This volume offers a strong Central European perspective on the politics of remembering and the politics of forgetting in the 20th century, and on interpretations of ourselves and the world around us in the 21st century. The promise to remember everything accompanied by the ability to obliterate anything from the face of the earth, or the promise to describe history just like it was, coupled with a modern obsession to forge history or to whitewash and rewrite it, appear as the contradictions of modernity that may be pushed to the limit at any time. The book offers Italian, French, Hungarian, Slovenian, Lithuanian and other European academic and cultural perspectives on this multidimensional phenomenon
