This article is about the politics of memory in post-Soviet Uzbekistan. It charts how the Uzbek authorities use the theme of victims and repressions in nation-state building, what difficulties and contradictions they face in doing so, what issues they stress in constructing historical narratives, what is highlighted and what is ignored. The article is based on the materials of the Museum of the Repressions Victims in Tashkent, and draws comparisons with museum exhibitions in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan.
