Narratives of Exile and Identity: Soviet Deportation Memoirs from the Baltic States

June 5, 2018

Edited by Violeta Davoliūtė and Tomas Balkelis

This collection of essays, published by CEU Press, considers the Soviet deportations from the Baltic States within the broader international research on displacement and cultural memory. Scholars from the Baltic States, Western Europe, Canada, and the United States explore the following questions: Do different groups of deportees experience deportation differently? How do the accounts of women, children and men differ? Do various ethnic groups remember the past differently? How do they use historical and cultural paradigms to structure their experience in unique ways?
