Abstract

Drawing on Pierre Nora's contribution to memory studies, this essay examines the mediation of history by deportation memory. Literary texts and ethnography are used to illuminate the historical experience of two Muslim peoples of the Caucasus: the Chechens, deported to Central Asia in 1944, and the Hunzib, who remained behind.
