Authors:
Budrytė, Dovilė
Abstract:
The article presents an examination into the role of women as loci of social memory regarding historical trauma in post-Communist Lithuania. Introductory comments are given discussing the social interconnectedness of gender, meta-narrative and nationalism within Balkan states such as Lithuania. Case examples are listed of personal accounts of women experiencing deportation and politically resisting the actions in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Details are given analyzing both the circumstances of the accounts as well as the social-historical role the women played within them.
