This book questions the presupposition voiced by many historians and political scientists that political experiences in Europe continue to be interpreted in terms of national history, and that a European community of remembrance still does not exist. Through the detailed analysis of both the national and the supranational level, it analyses the emergence of a sense of a shared European past that has started to transcend national forms of memory.
