The Texture of Memory : Holocaust Memorials and Meaning Paperback
In this study of Holocaust memorials, James E. Young explores both the idea of the monument and its role in public memory, disucssing how every nation remembers the Holocaust according to its own traditions, ideals, and experiences, and how these memorials reflect the ever-evolving meanings of the Holocaust in Europe, Israel and America.
The result is a study of Holocaust memory, public art and their fusion in contemporary life.
