Suppressed Remembrances

On the History of the Moscow City Fraternal Cemetery

(p.287) 17 Suppressed Remembrances
The Forgotten Front

Kristiane Janeke

University Press of Kentucky

Kristiane Janeke traces the history of the Moscow Brothers’ (Soldiers’) Cemetery, using the specific case of this memorial to wartime fallen as a springboard to a wider discussion of suppressed memories of the First World War in Russia. The chapter argues that remembrance of the war was deliberately stifled as part of the Bolshevik project of creating a new ideological identity for the fledgling Soviet regime. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, however, there have been efforts to restore Russians’ collective memory of the First World War.

Keywords:   Moscow Brothers’ Cemetery (Soldiers’ Cemetery), World War I remembrance, Soviet Union, war memorials
