The 3rd conference within the Genealogies of Memory framework took place in Warsaw in November 2013. It discussed the relationship between memory and law as well as concepts of justice with reference to post-communist transformations. Conference participants presented the papers showing the diversity of Eastern European experiences in dealing with the past and employing different legal measures to inform collective memory and identity. The keynote address “Justifying Atrocities: Contested Victims” by Elazar Barkan stimulated lively discussions during conference panels, which concentrated on the role of civil society and education in dealing with the past as well as courts’ influence on collective memory.Read the conference report
