Visegrad Insight & V4Revue

The great paradox of modernity is that everything is very close to its polarity.

The scholars will discuss, what the various forms of exclusionary violence in the period between empire and nation-states, and in the aftermath of the Holocaust when the nation states were reconstructed, do have in common; which discourses, patterns, and rituals did they follow; how the violence transformed these communities, and how the violence was narrated and remembered.
