‘Difficult’ heritage as the World Heritage: Russia in the context of international experience

Abstract. The article is devoted to the concept of 'difficult', or 'traumatic' heritage as immovable cultural heritage (based on the methodology of trauma stadies) and the analysis of the practice of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on the inclusion of such objects on the World Heritage List. The author states that there are already enough opportunities for the full integration of the traumatic heritage into the World. In particular, the initiative is considered to include in the World Heritage List a number of Russian sites related to the history of Soviet totalitarianism: the Canal imeni Moskvy, the Levashov Memorial Cemetery, the Butovo Test Site and the 'Perm-36' Museum.

Key words: UNESCO, World cultural heritage, difficult heritage, traumatic heritage, trauma stadies, totalitarianism, historical memory
