Social Aspects of Memory: Stories of Victims and Perpetrators from Bosnia-Herzegovina

By Alma Jeftic.

Social Aspects of Memory presents a compelling study of how ordinary people remember war events. Focusing on the divided city of Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, the book adopts a unique approach, looking at how perpetrators and victims (as well as new generations) manage in the aftermath. Drawing on the author’s own empirical research, the book explores the connection between memories for significant war events, transgenerational transmission of memories and readiness for reconciliation between two groups. It is essential reading for those interested in collective and transgenerational memory, memory studies, and the aftermath of the Bosnian War.

Alma Jeftic is a PhD candidate in Psychology at the University of Belgrade. Her research focuses on various aspects of memory.
