The Lack Of Memory About Multiculturalism In The Literature On The Settlement To The Western Lands Of Poland. 

E-mail Print PDF

The article is about the Polish literature on resettlements to the so-called Regained Territories. The postwar resettlement was the result of voluntary and enforced migrations – the aftermath of the shift of Polish territorial borders in 1945. The migrants were to be a homogeneous society, thus writers tended to avoid negative representations of a cultural melting pot. The article presents selected areas that have been marginalized in the collective memory: the separateness of the residents of Kresy, the conflicts in the communities of migrants and the autonomy of ethnic groups.
