Memory And World War II Summary


Memory And World War II: An Ethnographic Approach by Francesca Cappelletto

Foreword by Michael LambekThe death and destruction of war leave behind scars and fears that can last for generations. This book considers the connections between memory and violence in the wake of World War II.Covering the range of European experiences from East to West, Memory and World War II takes a long-term approach to the study of trauma at the local level. It challenges the notion of collective memory and calls for an understanding of memory as a fine line between the individual and society, the private and the public.

What we learn is that terrifying experiences reside not only in memories of the past but remain embedded in present-day lives.
