Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Germany, Poland, and Postmemorial Relations addresses the relationship between German and Polish memory discourses and practices after 1989, following the collapse of communism, the unification of Germany, and Polands accession to the EU. As opposed to the bilateral approach of other memory studies, this volume focuses on the interdependencies of German, Polish, and Jewish collective memories and their dialogic, transnational character. The contributors pose critical questions about the dynamics of the public discourse of memory and their cultural manifestations. Their findings indicate shifts in the Grand Memorial Narrative of Polish-German relations, from an engagement with a politics of entitlement to an EU-facilitated politics of reconciliation. They expand the operative notion of postmemory from the individual dimension to the collective, and reveal postmemory's formation as vulnerable to political, cultural, and economic pressures. This volume is addressed to a broad academic and non-academic audience interested in Central European culture and history.

Synopsis:

Following the end of the Cold War, Germans and Poles engaged in wide-reaching reassessments of their shared traumatic past. This volume examines the roles the German occupation, the Holocaust, and the postwar expulsion of Germans from Poland have come to play in contemporary German-Polish relations. Expanding the notion of "postmemory" from an individual dimension to a collective one, contributors show the ways in which postmemory's formation is vulnerable to political, cultural, and economic pressures. Their findings show the many ways in which the Polish-German 'grand memorial narrative' has shifted from a Cold War politics of entitlement to an EU-facilitated politics of reconciliation.
