War Memories, Monuments and Media: Representations of Conflicts and Creation of Histories of World War II



Author: Tito Genova Valiente; Hiroko Nagai

Is there any unspoken history of the war?Is the history of wars and conflicts in any country a matter of what can be edified as well as remembered and constructed? Who and what engineer the memories of the past? Those questions are the reasons for this book. It contains four interrrogations on why or how the memories were selected and the histories of the war were created. The sites where the memories emerge are no less grand. There is the cinema. There are the day-to-day newspaper, journal, and televesion presentations. Then there are the ruins, from which arose the memory sa conflicted that the resurrection has created more conflicts. These continuously create, reproduce and overwrite our remembering of the history of the war.
