Collective Memory of Political Events: Social Psychological Perspectives

By James W. Pennebaker; Dario Paez et al. | Go to book overview

What determines the commemoration device? I do not know. Power politics, propaganda, and access to the media may play vital roles. So may be the fact whether or not one's group is engaged in current controversy or oppression, real or imagined; so may be a group's morality, or that of its leaders and spokespersons, and the participating individuals. The main point here is that the functions of commemoration ritual at the level of the individuals' emotions and at that of the social reality are two very distinct issues.


ACKNOWLEDGMENT

This chapter is an adaptation of a speech, given on April 28, 1995, at the request of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research NWO, to recognize the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II and of the German occupation of the Netherlands.
