Społeczna pamięć przesiedlenia: studium porównawcze na przykładzie dwóch powojennych społeczności lokalnych Polski i Ukrainy
SOCIAL MEMORY OF DISPLACEMENT: COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TWO POSTWAR LOCAL COMMUNITIES IN POLAND AND UKRAINE
Languages of publication
In this article I analyze the forced resettlement/deportation in the narratives of Poles and Ukrainians, who between 1944 and 1946 were “repatriated” from former Borderlands to the “recovered lands” or from South-Eastern Poland to the Soviet Ukraine, and in the memory of their descendants. The empirical base of the analysis were interviews conducted during monographic research in two small towns in Poland and in Ukraine, Krzyż and Zhovkva. The text attempts to answer questions of whether the memory of the displacement among the interviewees from these two places has anything in common, what are the reasons of differences, and how the memory of displacement operates among the younger people in the families. Social and individual context of biographical memory were also analyzed.
