Country Report: Romania

Diana Popa

Research output: Working paper

Abstract

In Romania the memory of the Second World War, in particular the Jewish and Roma Holocaust, has been overshadowed by the memory of the more recent, communist past. This country report argues that, in contrast with the official memory politics, cultural production, such as film and literature are better positioned to explore problematic issues from the past and offer a more nuanced understanding of it. In this sense, this report recommends introducing media and film education at all levels of teaching in Romania as films capture, interpret and nuance the memory of the nation. The report argues that alongside curriculum reform, other initiatives such as film caravans and film series could contribute to emphasising the educational role of film and media.
