Katyn– the Soviet massacre of over 21,000 Polish prisonersin 1940 – has come to be remembered as Stalin’semblematic mass murder, an event obscured by one of the mostextensive cover-ups in history. Yet paradoxically, a majority ofits victims perished far from the forest in western Russia thatgives the tragedy its name. Their remains lie buried in killingfields throughout Russia, Ukraine and, most likely, Belarus. Todaytheir ghosts haunt the cultural landscape of Eastern Europe.

This book traces the legacy of Katyn through the interconnectedmemory cultures of seven countries: Belarus, Poland, Russia,Ukraine, and the Baltic States. It explores the meaning of Katyn assite and symbol, event and idea, fact and crypt. It shows how Katynboth incites nationalist sentiments in Eastern Europe and fostersan emerging cosmopolitan memory of Soviet terror. It also examinesthe strange impact of the 2010 plane crash that claimed the livesof Poland’s leaders en route to Katyn.

Drawing on novels and films, debates and controversies, this bookmakes the case for a transnational study of cultural memory andnavigates a contested past in a region that will defineEurope’s future.

Review:

"An informative survey of the debates occaasioned by the crimesof early 1940."
Times Literary Supplement

"A fine example of international research collaboration."

"An important corrective to most recent studies of imperialism,which rarely transcend the national optic."
Laboratorium: Russian Review of Social Research

"This book, a rare example of collective scholarship, is more thanpath-breaking. It manages to move around the furniture in an entirefield, that of memory studies, one that is shared by literaryscholars, linguists, anthropologists, psychologists, historians andothers. This exploration of memory events is essential reading forall students in the social sciences and the humanities."
Jay Winter, Yale University

"In an exemplary way, this multi-disciplinary in depth casestudy reconstructs the symbolic legacy of Katyn as a transnationaltrauma. The book is a unique collective achievement with genuinepotential to integrate this key event into European memory."
Aleida Assmann, University of Konstanz

"The crime of Katyn has bedeviled European memory for decades,and only an ambitious pan-European effort such as this one canreveal every angle of the problem – and some of thesolutions."
Timothy Snyder, Yale University
