The Monument Near Pr’ Skelet Bar and Zvezda Cafe
On the Politics of Memory in Slovenia in the Second Decade of the Third Millennium
The main purpose of this contribution is to describe and analyse the politics of memory in Slovenia in the most recent history regarding the events during World War II and immediately after it with the example of the design and erection of the Monument to the Victims of All Wars in Ljubljana. The article does not concern itself with the historical analysis of the post-war executions, but rather with their reception in the Slovenian public and politics. Furthermore, the purpose of this contribution is not to provide a normative evaluation of the events, processes, and historical actors, but rather a historical critique of the receptions of traumatic events in the Slovenian society in the second decade of the third millennium.
