This book chapter is about two cultural memory phenomena: on one hand imposed amnesia, that is forced forgetting on the part of political powers, and self-imposed amnesia, on the other hand, which is described as a survival strategy for those who cannot, or are not allowed to remember the catastrophes of which they were victims.
