Geteilte Regionen - geteilte Geschichtskulturen? Muster der Identitätsbildung im europäischen Vergleich
Magazines of European Network Remembrance and Solidarity, Volume 6. Geteilte Regionen - geteilte Geschichtskulturen? Muster der Identitätsbildung im europäischen Vergleich
During the 20th century borders were shifted and redrawn with far-reaching consequences for the population. This volume examines how such boundaries had impact on short and long-term memory cultures and mentalities on both sides of the newly formed borders. From the Conference held 2-5 March 2011, Cieszyn (Poland). Political decisions made during the 20th century divided many so far consistent historical regions of Europe, which had been developing integrally for many centuries. The conference took place from 2 to 5 March in the Książnica Cieszyńska in Cieszyn. One of the subjects analysed was the short- and long-term influence of the newly defined borders on historical memory on either sides of the new borders. A post-conference volume "Geteile Regionen - geteilte Geschichtskulturen" was published in 2013 (in German).
