Abstract:

The Art of Commemoration focuses on a particular historical event that
illustrates how nations define their own identities and establish
mutual relations in their discourse: the Warsaw Uprising of August
1944 and its Commemoration in 1994. This Commemoration was an
innovative and unique form of transnational communication because it
brought together representative speakers from all parties
involved. They considered the commemorated event from different
perspectives: the victim (Poland), the former enemy (Germany) and the
former allies (England, USA, France and other countries, as well as
Russia which liberated Poland but had not supported the Uprising). A
letter from the Pope added a Catholic perspective. The 'art of
commemoration' consists in invoking the past events from one�Euro(tm)s
own perspective while simultaneously considering the other
perspectives, as well as in making sense of the past and present at
the same time. This volume analyses the artful way in which the
speakers coped with these complexities in a full discourse analytic
reconstruction of each address.
