- Publisher's Summary
- In reconstructing the past, memory produces the sharing of the sensible, its cleavages and clashes parallel to the clashes of political sensibilities. This volume examines the shifting representations of heroes, victims, terror, and oppression of the Great War, Second World War, holocaust and communism in museums, historical monuments, public spaces and buildings, public holidays, and state symbols.
