Summary expansion
Germany, Poland, and Postmemorial Relations addresses the relationship between German and Polish memory discourses and practices after 1989, following the collapse of communism, the unification of Germany, and Poland's accession to the EU. As opposed to the bilateral approach of other memory studies, this volume focuses on the interdependencies of German, Polish, and Jewish collective memories and their dialogic, transnational character. The contributors pose critical questions about the dynamics of the public discourse of memory and their cultural manifestations. Their findings indicate shifts in the Grand Memorial Narrative of Polish-German relations, from an engagement with a politics of entitlement to an EU-facilitated politics of reconciliation. They expand the operative notion of postmemory from the individual dimension to the collective, and reveal postmemory's formation as vulnerable to political, cultural, and economic pressures. This volume is addressed to a broad academic and non-academic audience interested in Central European culture and history
