Abstract: »Last but not least, Irina Rebrova provides insights into gendered remembrance processes. On the basis of oral-history interviews – something that she classifies as a "fairly new phenomenon in Russia" – she reonstructs gendered patterns of war remembrances. In women's narration, everyday life during the occupation plays a key role. Russian women stress individual experiences more than presenting a patriotic master narrative.« (Maren Röger and Ruth Leiserowitz. »Introduction: Gender and World War II in Central and Eastern Europe.« Women and Men at War: A Gender Perspective on World War II and its Aftermath in Central and Eastern Europe.
