Destination culture tourism, museums, and heritage by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett ( )
20 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 2,109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume takes the reader on a journey from ethnological artifacts to kitsch. Posing the question, "What does it mean to show?", the author explores the agency of display in a variety of settings: museums, festivals, world's fairs, historical re-creations, memorials and tourist attractions. She talks about how objects - and people - are made to "perform" their meaning for us by the very fact of being collected and exhibited and about how specific techniques of display, not just the things shown, convey powerful messages

Anne Frank unbound : media, imagination, memory ( Book )
10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As millions of people around the world who have read her diary attest, Anne Frank, the most familiar victim of the Holocaust, has a remarkable place in contemporary memory. This volume of essays looks beyond this young girl's words at the numerous ways people have engaged her life and writing. Apart from officially sanctioned works and organizations, there exists a prodigious amount of cultural production, which encompasses literature, art, music, film, television, blogs, pedagogy, scholarship, religious ritual, and comedy. Created by both artists and amateurs, these responses to Anne Frank range from veneration to irreverence. Although at times they challenge conventional perceptions of her significance, these works testify to the power of Anne Frank, the writer, and Anne Frank, the cultural phenomenon, as people worldwide forge their own connections with the diary and its author
They called me Mayer July : painted memories of a Jewish childhood in Poland before the Holocaust by Mayer Kirshenblatt ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Mayer Kirshenblatt, who was born in 1916 and left Poland for Canada in 1934, taught himself to paint at age 73. Since then, he has made it his mission to remember the world of his childhood in living color, "lest future generations know more about how Jews died than how they lived." This volume presents his paintings woven together with a narrative created from interviews that took place over forty years between Mayer and his daughter, Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett. This collaboration - a unique blend of memoir, oral history, and artistic interpretation - is simultaneously a labor of love, a tribute to an imagination, and a portrait of life in one Jewish hometown."--Jacket

The film directs its lens at all aspects of that now-vanished world, showing us a diverse community and culture. It encompasses city and shtetl, rich and poor, secular and spiritual, politics and society, all permeated by the distinctive character and values that developed in the Polish-Jewish community over nearly a millennium"--Study guide, p. 1
