Already in the early 20th century it was discovered by psychoanalysts that human personality is constituted through trauma. Not only this theory remained relevant to this day but, moreover, it has been replenished with new theories, clarifications, case studies, and has been absorbed into the arsenals of most varied humanitarian disciplines. Man's intellectual work, his striving to comprehend the world while at the same time coping with its challenges, and the knowledge accumulated as a result of this effort – all this has been born not only thanks to purely rational operations but has been deeply rooted in man's emotional-psychological experience. Since traumas inevitably accompany us throughout our lifetime and stay in our memory they determine the narrative and structural features of our memory. Since our memory of trauma is not only a constituting factor but also a negative one, the wish to con- sign it to oblivion, or a tendency for displacement, to use a term from psychoanalysis, is inseparable from human experience.
