Abstract

The paper presents the results of a Russian study on the state and dynamics of the historical memory of Russian students. As a scientific result, the paper presents the main socialization results by virtue of broadcasting the historical memory of the Great Patriotic War to students of the Russian frontier region. The main positions that characterize the identified socialization results are outlined: background emotional and value experiences associated with the long-term consequences of a wartime cultural trauma, and historical narrative: student assessments / interpretations of relevant historical events that have been intensively revised in several European countries in recent decades within the framework of the "politics of memory." As a result of the study, the problematic points of upbringing the historical memory of student youth were identified; they mainly include narrative moments related to the comprehension of a number of controversial political assessments / interpretations concerning the events of the Second World War in the “information wars” conditions.
