«“I remember everything that happened to others…” Metamorphoses of the collective memory in extreme conditions of war and reliability of historical sources problems»
The article is devoted to the problem of the influence of the mass consciousness perception under war conditions on the historical sources accuracy. In particular it deals with the investigative materials on the facts of detainees’ death in fasist prison camps in ports of Danzig and Gdynia on the eve of their liberation by the Red Army in March-June, 1945. The author came to the conclusion that although war prisoners’ testimony requires close attention from the point of view of reliability of their separate events perception, still it remains as a precious source of social history of World War II.
