역사적 기억상실증

6·25전쟁이 끝나고 서울 남대문시장에는 속칭 ‘도깨비시장’이 생겼다. ‘미제(美製)’를 몰래 팔았다. 주로 미군 부대 또는 미국 구호물자에서 불법으로 흘러나온 물건들이었다. 변변한 국산(國産)이 없던 터라 부유층에게 꽤 인기였다. 단속반이 뜨고 지는 데 따라 미제는 도깨비처럼 진열대에 나타났다 사라지곤 했다.

도깨비시장은 미국을 자유와 풍요의 상징으로 비춰준 시대의 창(窓)이었다. 미국에 대한 동경을 자극해 ‘우리도 한번 잘살아 보세’라고 다짐하게 했다. 교육열도 이때 타오르기 시작했다. ‘못 입고 못 먹어도 자식만은 학교에 보내 출세시킨다’ ‘논 팔고 소 팔아도 학비는 댄다’고 했다.
