Abstract

The story of Viktorija Ceginskas is a story of interactions between different ethnicities, cultures, and languages on the borders of the Baltic States. She shows how stateless refugees may compensate for their loss of identity by strong emotional bonds with families, native countries, and languages. She shows how "language use and practices help to determine a person’s self- and externally ascribed identification by others, and provide orientation in everyday social interactions, including the recognition as a valid and represented group member with specific rights.”
