Languages of publication
The main task of the text is a comparative presentation of the legal methods for the petrification of the historical narrations after the collapse of communism in central and eastern Europe. The purpose is mainly to show how M. Halbwachs concepts of collec- tive memories creation are in use in the preambles to Latvia and Hungarian constitu- tions. These two acts are presented in comparison to constitutional acts from some other post–communist states from the region such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Lithuania. Another important problem is related to the question of why in fact states are deciding to use such a tool inside their constitutions.
