In this talk, Professor Pető tells the story of erecting a memorial for women who were raped in World War II by German, Soviet and Hungarian soldiers in Hungary. Her talk explores various socio-political aspects surrounding it, such as the dramatic shift in the portrayal of wartime rape: from a silenced, unspeakable phenomenon, to a tangible spectacle; and the need to negotiate between the emerging national politics of remembrance and the maintenance of political and economic relations with Germany and Russia.
