The power of memory and the political dialogue in Greece : The rise of radicalism


  • Eleftherios Ntotsikas

Summary, in English

This study explores the contexts in which the conflict evolved and how history was perceived, narrated and used by institutions, communities and individuals who sought to influence public opinion and policymakers. The theoretical point of departure is the concept of collective memory, defined as the totality of discourses through which a society makes sense of itself, the present and the future through the interpretation of the past. In the study of collective memory, the notions of narratives and uses of history have been employed, with the notion of boundary-work as a supplementing analytical tool. The material of the study is primarily drawn from parliamentary speeches, but also includes historiography. The study shows how the memory of World War II and Greek Civil War affects political discourse, how many references are and tries to analyze why this is happening or not. Particular attention is paid to the emergence of a narrative on war reparations from Germany. This happened in an age when traditional notions of national pride were being challenged by transnational history-cultural concerns about human rights and the notion of national guilt.
