The Uhlman Seminar: Learning from the Holocaust: Public Monuments, Museums, and Memory
Recent controversies over monuments featuring leaders and soldiers of the Confederacy in the American Civil War have sparked heated debates—and violent acts—over what to publicly commemorate and how to do it. Many suggest that honoring the victims of historic catastrophes would provide more resolution and healing for communities than celebrating the actors that perpetrated them. This seminar explores how memorialization in art and public spaces in Europe and America of those murdered in the Holocaust offers lessons for Americas as we contend with a painful national past.
