Following the end of the Cold War, Germans and Poles engaged in wide-reaching reassessments of their shared traumatic past. This volume examines the roles the German occupation, the Holocaust, and the postwar expulsion of Germans from Poland have come to play in contemporary German-Polish relations. Expanding the notion of "postmemory" from an individual dimension to a collective one, contributors show the ways in which postmemory's formation is vulnerable to political, cultural, and economic pressures. Their findings show the many ways in which the Polish-German 'grand memorial narrative' has shifted from a Cold War politics of entitlement to an EU-facilitated politics of reconciliation.

About the Author:

Kristin Kopp is an associate professor of German Studies at the University of Missouri. Joanna Nizynska is an associate professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures and teaches Polish Studies at Harvard University.

Review:

"Germany, Poland and Postmemorial Relations: In Search of a Livable Past presents a fascinating constellation of perspectives on the ever-changing Polish-German relationship. This scholarly exchange offers a welcome inquiry into a complicated labyrinth of neighborly claims, resentments, nostalgic sentiments, and state politics." - Bozena Shallcross, professor, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, University of Chicago

"This collection of stimulating articles, framed by a lively introduction by Kopp and Nizynska, gives a fascinating overview of debates in German-Polish relations over the last two decades, involving politics and culture, interdependent collective memory and public legitimacy, victimhood and guilt, grand narratives and contested spaces, all of tremendous significance for Europe's future." - Vejas Gabriel Liulevicius, Lindsay Young Professor of History and director of the Center for the Study of War and Society, University of Tennessee

"This collection represents a major contribution to our understanding of perhaps the most complex relationship in modern European history. This compelling analysis of the post-1989 Polish and German 'memory' of an often dark past is insightful, provocative, and unsettling, yet manages to leave the reader in an optimistic mood by explaining how these old neighbors can mend and are mending their fence." - Robert L. Nelson, associate professor of History, University of Windsor

"A bright constellation of insightful, accessible essays on contemporary remembrance and embrace of the intricately intertwined German-Polish-Jewish past, authored by a multinational array of today's leading cultural analysts and historians. This valuable book highlights newly meaningful, often positive legacies that are emerging from the shadows of the communist era and the mid-twentieth century's tragedies." - William Hagen, professor emeritus of History, University of California, Davis
