Thirty years after the end of state socialism, the need to fully comprehend it is still an immediate task. Over the past three decades, the dominant public discourse of the previous historical period has undergone significant changes: from a firm rejection in the first years of the transition to the latest wave of rehabilitation of the regime and nostalgia (socialist nostalgia, Ostalgie, Yugo/Tito-nostalgia). To varying degrees, post-socialist societies in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe are still divided in their attitudes to the recent past.
