Memories on the move: Remembering in the families of Czech Germans and Croatian Czechs

Karina Hoření

Memories on the move: Remembering in the families of Czech Germans and Croatian Czechs

The book is based in the tradition of memory studies and German etnography and offers an analysis of memories and processes of remembering in three generations of four ethnic minorities that were affected by forced or voluntary transfers after WW2: Germans living in Czechia, Germans transferred to Germany from Czechoslovakia, Czechs transferred to Czechoslovakia from Yugoslavia and Czech minority in Croatia. Authors demonstrate how families remember and how individual memories are transferred and how they change in each subsequent generation. Intimate family stories are confronted with wider memory frameworks circulating in society and media.

Keywords:

memory, memory studies, minorities, migration, expulsion, transfer, generation, Sudeten Germans, Croatian Czechs, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia.
