James Young: The Stages of Memory and the Monument: From Berlin to New York

On April 29, 2007, James Young gave a keynote speech for the Witnessing Genocide Symposium. In this slide presentation, Young examines the stages of memorialization as they have played out in design competitions in Berlin for Germany’s national Holocaust memorial and in New York City for the World Trade Center Site Memorial. He also looks at how the vernacular of memorials has changed since the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial, how the very idea of the memorial has evolved from icons of individual mourning to those of mass death.
