Politics of Memory and Commemorations of Victims

Jelena Đureinović, Memory Politics

“Memorialisation should be and usually is an aspect of the wider process of reconciliation, social reconstruction and restoration of social and political relations within society which were damaged during the period of violence or repression … Nevertheless, it must be taken into consideration that the discourses of reconciliation are often used for mnemonic projects which are essentially political and often promote revisionist historical interpretations.”
