Stettin, Szczecin und der „dritte Raum“ – Erinnerung im deutsch-polnisch-jüdischen Grenzland

TD: volume 16, issue 2019, 1, page 39–59


Es folgt die Zusammenfassung in englischer Sprache following the article short description

This article addresses the question of how contemporary commemoration projects spatialize the memory of Jewish and German presence in Stettin/Szczecin and map Jewishness in the urban space. Analyzing local memorial projects and autobiographical writings that address the Jewish past in Stettin/Szczecin, I investigate the particular conditions of urban nostalgia in the so-called “Regained Lands” where the Jewish legacy is inseparable from the German one and where the rediscovery of Jewish spaces thus entails a process of cultural translation and “overwriting” of contested spaces.
