Event: Dealing with the Soviet Past: Is There a Right Memory Model for Russia?


 

The Soviet past looms large in present-day Russia. Some view history with a mix of pride and nostalgia, while others focus on the crimes of the communist system, in particular state terror. Several projects exist in Russia to reconcile its past, a few of which are inspired by foreign models. Nikolay Epplée and Mischa Gabowitsch will discuss international models of coming to terms with the past that might prove productive for Russia, and the difficulties that can arise when learning commemorative practices from other countries.
