It demonstrates that the regimes approach to memory politics was not stagnant, but rather evolved over time to meet different demands and potential threats to its legitimacy. Ultimately the party found it increasingly difficult to control the public portrayal of the past, and some dissidents were able to turn the partys memory politics against the state to challenge its claims of moral authority.
