The newest issue of Remembrance and Solidarity Studies in 20th- Century European History is available online
The 4th issue – entitled “The memory of economic crisis” – focuses on depressions, recessions, shortages, and hyperinflation. These topics are not often a subject of memory studies, however memories of war and revolution often center on the economic experience of these events.
Therefore, scholars look among others into Living in Warsaw under Hyperinflation in 1923 (by Izabela Mrzygłód), Parallels of Economic Business Cycles in Slovakia (by Ľudovít Hallon), Public Transportation in Budapest in 1945-46 (by Zsuzsa Frisnyák) and discuss The Possibility of Remembering Economic Crisis (by Łukasz Mańczyk).
Moreover, the publication contains a transcription of a panel dedicated to the discussion of the nature of economic crises as historical events, with a particular focus on the ways they are experienced, interpreted and remembered. Among the participants of the panel were Padraic Kenney, Wojciech Roszkowski and Matěj Spurný.
