Moderation: Dr Aleksandra Janus, Dr Małgorzata Jędrzejczyk

During the panel discussion we would like to talk about the legacy of both totalitarianisms in Central and Eastern Europe. We are interested in both the material heritage that both totalitarian regimes left behind as well as the politics of memory related to them. We would like to discuss the contemporary resonance of these material objects - can we call them difficult heritage? Contested heritage? Dissonant heritage? How contemporary societies are using these objects? When it comes to the politics of memory, we are also interested in how this legacy is memorialised and institutionalised and how discourses about it have changed over the years.
