The Contested memorial cultures of post-Liberation France: polemical responses to the legal purge of collaborators, 1944-c.1954

Record type: Book Section

The chapter shows the workings of ‘counter-memory’ in relation to the legal purge of collaborators in France (1944-1951), using as source material trial transcripts, legal polemic, the periodical press, memoir-histories and history novels to analyse the strategies used in its construction. The aim is to illustrate the interplay between individual memory, social acts of commemoration and historical memory. The author concludes that the attempt on the part of a disgruntled few to mobilize a shared sense of the past in an attack on the dominant memorial culture around the war demonstrates an interpenetration of past experience and present concerns characteristic of ‘memory politics’ in general.
