Variations Between Memory and History

1/2008

The relationship between history and memory is an enticing topic for discussion. These two phenomena are often interconnected but also confused. In some cases, there are no qualitative differences between the reminiscences of contemporaries and the results of a historical analysis. However, these phenomena can be significantly different, though both can be very acceptable to society. This year's first issue of Forum Historiae presents studies which deal with the relationship between historiography and memory from various perspectives. In the section "Materials," we offer two reviews and an older text from an important Slovak historian, Daniel Rapant. A discussion on extensive questions which were in the previous issue continues in this one too. A portal section of Forum Historiae has been supplemented with publications which can be downloaded free of charge as well as with information concerning upcoming events.
