Christophe, Barbara – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2021
Comparing narratives of the Soviet occupation in 1940 in current textbooks by two leading Lithuanian publishing houses, I claim that Lithuanian textbooks offer diverging accounts, which mirror to a large extent the opposing mnemonic frames supported by two rival political camps. I also show that the same textbooks tame those differences by…

Fedor, Julie – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2021
This article explores a key claim underpinning Russian official memory politics, namely, the notion that Russia's past (and especially the role it played in the Second World War) is the object of a campaign of "historical falsification" aimed at, among other things, undermining Russian sovereignty, especially by distorting young people's…

Hasselmann, Anne E. – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2021
In the wake of the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, Soviet museum curators began to establish a museal depiction of the war.

Ehrlich, Serguey – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2021
In the fifteen Russian textbooks of the 1990s examined in this article, the Second World War is subject to three levels of reflection: language, narrative templates, and the representation of contested events.

Dessingué , Alexandre; Knutsen, Ketil – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2021

Kropman, Marc; van Boxtel, Carla; van Drie, Jannet – Journal of Educational Media, Memory and Society, 2020
