"How should Germany commemorate the mass murder of Jews once committed in its name? In 1997, James E. Young was invited to join a German commission appointed to find an appropriate design for a national memorial in Berlin to the European Jews killed in World War II. As the only foreigner and only Jew on the panel, Young gained a unique perspective on Germany's fraught efforts to memorialize the Holocaust. In this book, he tells for the first time the inside story of Germany's national Holocaust memorial and his own role in it." "In exploring Germany's memorial crisis, Young also asks the more general question of how a generation of contemporary artists can remember an event like the Holocaust, which it never knew directly."--Jacket

The art of memory : Holocaust memorials in history( Book )

12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have chosen to investigate the reasons why memorials have been built, to look at whose memory is being honored, and to examine the responses to these memorials. The creation of an exhibition and the production of this book presented the opportunity for an analytic perspective. In the process, we have neither created another memorial nor have we solely explored the field of Holocaust art. Rather, we have attempted to reveal the nature of the creative process through the discussion of specific examples of a number of memorials, and we have tried to understand their meaning and the reaction to them in the many places where they exist. - Preface
