FOR AUTUMN 2023
A MAJOR NEW ACADEMIC COLLECTION:
Edited by Paul Srodecki and Daria Kozlova
Twelve papers in three sections: “Conceptual Frameworks”, “State Memory Narratives and their Public Perception” and “Museums, Memorials and Monuments as Controversial Objects of Cultural Memory”
Defending History’s comment: “One of the rare academic collections on the subject whose contributors are generally truly independent, in sharp distinction to volumes featuring academics whose state-sponsored jobs, financing, medals, honors and junkets lead them to serve as de facto state history policy surrogates, apologists or ‘history fixers’. This volume is a must-read for the reader desiring to keep abreast with the latest scholarly work in the bona fide investigation of massive state investment in the revision of history.”

Question for readers and scholars: Does the Dieckmann/Vanagaite volume have the same perspective as Vanagaite/Zuroff on the outbreak of the Lithuanian Holocaust and the murder of thousands before the arrival and/or setting up of authority by invading German forces in the last week of June 1941?
