abstract
Building upon recent developments in memory studies and transnational memory, this book offers a comparative analysis of Yugoslav Holocaust memory and its intersections with other forms of extreme violence, such as the suffering of the non-Jewish South-Slav population during World War II, the victims of Stalinist terror, and the victims of ethnic cleansing in the Yugoslav wars. Drawing on a variety of sources, including (post- )Yugoslav Holocaust fiction, the author offers novel theoretical concepts that conceive of (traumatic) memory as non-competitive and foreground its capability to transcend the boundaries of the nation.
