"Some of the refugees eventually found new homes…" Narratives of German minorities in Canada, the US and Europe
Their diaspora after escaping the second Yugoslavia, lead the Gottscheers - "Volksdeutsche", seen there as collaborators of the Nazi occupation - to cities as diverse as Kitchener, Sydney or Villach in Austria. In their "new homelands", they set up minority communities that tried to preserve a memory of the "old homeland" in constructing a myth that basically denies responsibilities concerning their involvement in National Socialism. The Internet, however, made it possible to attack dominant discourses since the early 1990s and to add statements never told before. This talk will focus the "democratic power" of the Internet by showing its impact on the memory culture of the Gottscheers.
