Aside word and memory.
Narration about sexual violence towards women from East Prussia in Polish memory discourse after the 1945

     In this article, I will describe the strategy of silence and crossing the silence when it comes to sexual violence, which women from East Prussia experienced throughout several months between 1945 and 1947. I will investigate the language of this absence, I will look for the functions of this rhetoric and dysfunctional euphemisms. I will ask about the level of 'colonisation' of narration of violence. The analytical material will be journalistic texts, fiction and film narration.

     Keywords: sexual violence towards women from East Prussia, Polish memory discourse after the 1945.
