The transnational dynamics of local remembrance : The Jewish past in a former shtetl in Poland

Törnquist-Plewa, Barbara LU (2018) In Memory Studies 11(3). p.301-314
Abstract

This article presents an example of how the transnational production of memory is at work in a small Polish town that, prior to the Holocaust, was a “shtetl.” The author uses transnational optics to take an in-depth look at how local memories of Jews and the Holocaust are formed in this particular locality and discusses the effects of transnational mnemonic encounters. She highlights the multiscalarity of transnational processes as well as the continuing resilience of national frameworks.
