Collective Expressions Of Memory In The Isle Of Man

By Daniel Travers

Abstract

Much has been written about how Great\ud Britain remembers the events of World War\ud Two. The prevailing tendency within British\ud society is to focus on the positive aspects of\ud the War to see the entire war as ‘Britain’s\ud finest hour’ This often minimizes\ud controversial aspects of the conflict, and\ud the diversity of experience across the rest\ud of the British Isles, in order to reinforce\ud notions of British unity. This has been\ud described by historians as the ‘Churchill\ud paradigm’, which manifests itself not only in\ud mental memory, but in collective\ud expressions of a society’s identity
