Abstract

IN ENGLISH: Historical grievances of different political groups in the EU contributed to the rising opposition to “Brussels”. This opposition is often framed through memories that contest the official EU narrative of the peaceful and prosperous continental integration that was able to overcome the destructions of the two world wars and the Cold War divisions. Based on the analysis of the development of some of the most prominent Eurosceptic parties (le Front National, die Alternative für Deutschland, Syriza, Podemos, Fidesz, Prawo i Sprawiedliwość), it is argued that recent EU crises and especially their interpretations have been influenced by the legacies of some of the most important periods of twentieth-century European history. The legacy of the Second World War and its aftermath in two founding member states (France, Germany), the legacy of right-wing dictatorships in two Southern European member states (Greece, Spain) and the legacy of communist dictatorships in two Central and Eastern European member states (Hungary, Poland) still shape narratives and stances towards European integration. --------------- IN CROATIAN: Osjećaj povijesnih nepravdi kod različitih političkih grupa u EU doprinijeli su rastućem protivljenju Bruxellesu. To protivljenje se često iskazuje upotrebom sjećanja koja dovode u pitanje službeni EU narativ o mirnom i prosperitetnom kontinentu koji je uspio prevladati dva svjetska rata i hladnoratovske podjele. Na osnovi analize razvoja nekoliko najprominentnijih euroskeptičnih stranaka (le Front National, die Alternative für Deutschland, Syriza, Podemos, Fidesz, Prawo i Sprawiedliwość), tvrdi se da su na nedavne EU krize i posebno na njihove interpretacije utjecale ostavštine nekih od najznačajnijih razdoblja europske povijesti u 20. stoljeću. Ostavština Drugog svjetskog rata i njegove posljedice u dvije države osnivačice (Francuska, Italija), ostavština desničarskih diktatura u dvije zemlje Južne Europe (Grčka, Španjolska) i ostavština komunističkih diktatura u dvije zemlje Srednje i Istočne Europe (Mađarska, Poljska) još uvijek oblikuju narative i pozicioniranje prema europskoj integraciji.
