Summary:
"Since 1989, no two sites of memory have captured public attention with respect to the deportation and persecution of Jews in France and Germany during the Second World War more intensely than the Vel' d'Hiv' (Winter Velodrome) in Paris and the Monument for the Murdered Jews of Europe or 'Holocaust Monument' in Berlin. Why is this so? Both monuments, the author argues, are unique in the history of memorial projects.
