Fluctuating memory

Collective, individual, cultural or communicative memory are very well known in the science. But what is fluctuating or ambiguous memory?

I came to this conclusion in regard to my analyse of monuments in L'viv between 1867 and 1939. "Ambiguous memory" means that the memory on one person or event is differential for different society groups and even individuals.

The monuments could be symbols of the city, region, nation and state, also of course of an political, cultural, religious idea at once. This results from the booming landscape of monuments in L'viv.

I presented my these for the participants of the Kolloquium about current researches in the history of the Institut für Europäische Geschichte (Professur für Europäische Regionalgeschichte, Technische Universität Chemnitz) in Chemnitz in November 2011.
