Searching for Living Ghosts: The Archaeology of Communist Repression in Poland
AbstractThe study of repression suffered by Polish society in the twentieth century has become an integral part of Polish archaeology in the last 25 years. These experiences resulted in the establishment of forensic and contemporary archaeology. The main line of research within this new specialization is linked to the recognition of the graves of the victims of totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century. Archaeological research has contributed to finding and identifying the remains of hundreds of fatal victims of communism. The examination of cultural landscapes marked by communism has been carried out on a much smaller scale. The initial positive results allow us to presume that it will intensify over the next few years.
