Methodological Nationalism in History Writing. Missing Locals of Slovakia
New post on the EHRI Document Blog takes a closer look at a taped interview with a Holocaust survivor from a small town in eastern Slovakia which has a restricted access in Slovakia. The post follows the life story of the survivor and asks the questions: What propelled the interviewee to forbid access to his testimony strictly in the country in which he was born? What does locally controlled access tell us about the experience, but also the environment of a Holocaust witness and how do scholars integrate a story that is missing, and even more so, one that is restricted?
