Preoccupied by the Past The Case of Estonian's Museum of Occupations

Burch, S. and Zander, Ulf LU (2008) In Scandia 74(2). p.53-73
Abstract
The nation is born out of the resistance, ideally without external aid, of its nascent citizens against oppression [...] An effective founding struggle should contain memorable massacres, atrocities, assassinations and the like, which serve to unite and strengthen resistance and render the resulting victory the more justified and the more fulfilling. They also can provide a focus for a "remember the x atrocity" historical narrative.(1)
