"After a short period of independence, Estonia was occupied in World War II by the Red Army, then Nazi Germany, and again, for a lasting occupation, by the Soviets. No wonder that a greater part of the roughly one million Estonians had harshly eventful lives." "This anthology contains 25 selected life stories collected from Estonians who lived through the tribulations of the 20 century, and describe the travails of ordinary people under numerous regimes. The autobiographical accounts provide authentic perspectives on events of this period, where time is placed in the context of life-spans, and subjects grounded in personal experience. Most of the life stories reveal sufferings under foreign (Russian) oppression." "The product of a large-scale national project to record history by collecting autobiographical accounts, and a process of engaged selection for publication which followed. The variety of life-experiences recorded offers comparison across cultures, as well as an overview of the powerful neighbors as they relinquish and strengthen their hold on Estonia."--BOOK JACKET
After Memory : World War II in Contemporary Eastern European Literatures( )

3 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even seventy-five years after the end of War War II, the commemorative cultures surrounding the War and the Holocaust in Central, Eastern and South Eastern Europe are anything but fixed. The fierce debates on how to deal with the past among the newly constituted nation states in these regions have already received much attention by scholars in cultural and memory studies. The present volume posits that literature as a medium can help us understand the shifting attitudes towards World War II and the Holocaust in post-Communist Europe in recent years. These shifts point to new commemorative cultures shaping up "after memory". Contemporary literary representations of World War II and the Holocaust in Eastern Europe do not merely extend or replace older practices of remembrance and testimony, but reflect on these now defunct or superseded narratives. New narratives of remembrance are conditioned by a fundamentally new social and political context, one that emerged from the devaluation of socialist commemorative rituals and as a response to the loss of private and family memory narratives. The volume offers insights into the diverse literatures of Eastern Europe and their ways of depicting the area's contested heritage

From the back cover: This book is certain to play a positive role in the building of civil society in Estonia and in promoting understanding of the nature of Estonian life outside Estonia. I have been studying Baltic societies for more than 30 years, and never in that period have I been more enthusiastic in recommending a book. Paul A. Goble, former Special Advisor on Soviet Nationality Problems and Baltic Affairs, Department of State This anthology brings to life in a very person a way how history stormed into people's lives and subsequently shaped them. Consequently, these fifteen stories offer personal and intimate vignettes that history books often fail to reveal in their treatment of the "big picture". H.E. Alona Wos, US Ambassador to Estonia The voices of the strong-minded and determined women we hear in this anthology cannot fail to inspire us. Their struggles personal, public and political and the courage and strength with which they faced them are a model of triumph over adversity and a lesson for us all. Glenys Kinnock, Member of European Parliament, UK The volume is a welcome addition to the recently enhance mosaic of primary sources in the Russian and East European area as well as a useful contribution to the field of gender studies. Toivo Raun, Professor, Indiana University Estonia was frozen in by Soviet occupation with its pseudo-equality, which led to the notorious "double burden" and turned women's rights into a dirty word for many people. This anthology is a significant part of steps needed to make a dent into such attitudes. It would be a useful textbook in raising women's consciousness. Rain Taagepera, Professor, University of California, Irvine "Carrying Linda's Stones" presents an authentic and emotionally compelling record of women's struggles to survive WWII, occupations, deportations, exile, and the transition to restored independence. I can highly recommend it. Melissa Wells, former Ambassador to Estonia
