ABSTRACT
This multiple-perspective ethnographic case study explores the current meanings of the Jewish cultural heritage for the Jewish community of Košice in Slovakia and its urban environment. Based on interviews with experts, and narrative interviews, archival research, media monitoring, object-analysis, and participant observation, the author's analysis focuses on the city's synagogues which emerge as narrative spaces triggering discourses of conflict between different interest groups and witnessing social practices that address cultures of remembrance.
