Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The politics of memory is the political means by which events are remembered and recorded, or discarded. The terminology addresses the role of politics in shaping collective memory and how remembrances can differ markedly from the objective truth of the events as they happened. The influence of politics on memory is seen in the way history is written and passed on.Memories are influenced by political and cultural forces. Government policies and social rules, as well as popular culture and social norms, influence the way events are remembered. In one example, German Chancellor Helmut Kohl instituted a politics of memory for the generation born after war. His policies reflected the belief that there was no reason to continue the guilt of the past and that the time had come for getting past the negative historical experiences[citation needed]. It has also been connected with the construction of identity.
