After World War II the stability of both western and eastern Europe rested on a consensual embargo on discussing many uncomfortable aspects of the war. The demise of this consesus after the end of the Cold War has allowed historical research to throw aside the mythical narratives that emerged during this period, leading to a volitile area in which a plethora of views are articulated. This lecture will examine the struggle to control the public memory of World War II across Europe and will argue that the years since 1989 are the real postwar years.
Monday 28 January 2008, Windsor Building Auditorium, 6pm.
