Dealing with the Soviet Past: Is There a Right Memory Model for Russia?

The Soviet past looms large in present-day Russia. Some view history with a mix of pride and nostalgia, while others focus on the crimes of the communist system, in particular state terror. Several projects exist in Russia to reconcile its past, a few of which are inspired by foreign models.
