Summary
Envisioning Prague as a multilayered text, or palimpsest, that has been constantly revised & rewritten, Alfred Thomas argues that it has become a paradoxical site of inscription & effacement, of memory & forgetting, a utopian link to the pre-war & pre-Holocaust European past & a dystopia of totalitarian amnesia
