[Naslov na engleskom:].Subject(s): 5.04 | Difficult heritage, cultural heritage, monuments, identity, heritage interpretation, memory | Difficult heritage, cultural heritage, monuments, identity, heritage interpretation, memoryOnline resources: Click here to access online | Click here to access online In: International Conference - War, Revolution and Memory - Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe (2017 ; Zagreb) International Conference - War, Revolution and Memory - Post-War Monuments in Post-Communist Europe str. 37Summary: Heritage is often described as the construction of identity – specifically national identity (Smith, 2006) and cultural heritage and monuments play an important role in that specific process. The term difficult heritage was first used by Sharon Macdonald in 2007 and since then this subject of the so-called "unsettling memories" has been in focus of many researchers and theoreticians from various fields of research. Facing and coping with difficult heritage, its interpretation and communication becomes a great challenge. As already seen, many heritage interpretation strategies have been criticized – are we using heritage to legitimize or de-legitimize certain versions of the past? The aim of this paper is to give an overview of the subject of difficult heritage and the ongoing discussion. What can we learn from the international heritage practice and is there "the right way" to deal with post-war heritage at all?
