The article examines the Italian political debate about the memory of the Foibe massacres and the Giulian-Dalmatian exodus, and the consequences it had on EU institutions since the 1990s. It analyzes the many speeches given at the European Parliament by members of several Italian right-wing parties, requesting that the EU make the massacres experienced by Italians on the Eastern front part of Europe’s memory its past. This request should be understood as part of the condemnation of the crimes carried out by Communism, an issue that has become particularly relevant in the context of the EU’s enlargement to Eastern European countries. In this context, the EU has embraced anti-totalitarianism as its main memory paradigm, a paradigm based on the condemnation of the crimes carried out by both the Nazis and the Communists.
Keywords: Foibe, Eastern Border, Memory, European Union, Communist Crimes, Antitotalitarianism
