This volume explores the different ways in which the GDR has been remembered since its demise in 1989/90, and asks how memory of this state continues to impact on contemporary Germany. The chapters offer multiple perspectives on the GDR, examining the way memories have been expressed in and shaped by literature, film, music, museums, monuments, historical narratives, commemorative events and everyday discourse concerning the GDR. In resisting monolithic readings of the GDR, the volume offers new insights into the complex relationship between past and present in eastern Germany"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
