Społeczne ramy zbiorowej pamięci rodziny
Since 1945, in Opole Silesia, there have occurred unique processes of forming regional community of varied socio-demographic structure, identity, different experience of history, attitudes and views. Among the social groups inhabiting the region, a significant place is occupied by the population displaced from the Former-Eastern-Lands of Poland, living beside settlers, that is people who came here from others regions of Poland, as well as native Silesians. I present, then, the processes of shaping and changes in the individual and group consciousness in the generation–oriented dimension and also the evolution of the memory of the past and its influence on the current social life. A particularly interesting problem is the attitudes of the young generation towards the transmission of the family remembrance of the past, since – in the light of the research results – the thesis can be put forwards, which needs further verifying in broadly–conducted research into this group though, that are hard to foresee at the moment, the displaced will make a rather disappearing group in Opole-Silesia.
