About the workshop
The workshop is dedicated to the still conflicting potential collective memory has in many countries in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. This is due to the fact that different participants of mass violence de facto consciously or unconsciously form different memories that depend on their roles in conflicts (heroes, victims, bystanders, and criminals). The immediate participants of those events over time transfer the memories of the experiences, thus forming a communicative memory. Although it is subjective, communicative memory plays a significant role in forming memories of certain events. It happens so because of the peculiarities of its functioning (first of all, in the family environment and among those who had the same experience during national or ethno-confessional conflicts). Opposite memories are in conflict, which determines the relevance and urgency of reconciliation. It is an important step when addressing the consequences of mass violence.
