Book: Remembering Ethnic Cleansing and Lost Cultural Diversity in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern European Cities
In 2010 CFE initiated a book project within the framework of the Memory Studies research program. A group of researchers connected to CFE¨s memory Program gathered to study memories of ethnic cleansing and lost cultural diversity among the present-day population in Eastern European cities. The work is now finished and the book, edited by Barbara Törnquist-Plewa, will be published by Berghahn Books in late 2015 or early 2016. The case studies cover Wroclaw (Igor Petraszewski and Barbara Törnquist-Plewa), Lviv (Eleonora Narvselius), Chernivtsi (Niklas Bernsand), Sudetenland (Tomas Sniegon), Zadar (Tea Sindbaek), and Visegrad (Dragan Nikolic).
