In this slide lecture, Professor James E. Young (UMass Amherst) will discuss public memorials and history from World War II and the Holocaust to the National 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero and reflect on the process of creating a memorial in Norway for the 2011 mass shooting. James Young, one of the world’s foremost authorities on the representation of the Holocaust in art and memorials, was on the jury for the World Trade Center Site Memorial Competition and is currently completing an insider's account of his experience with that process. The event will be held Wednesday, September 30, at 7:30 p.m. at the Douglass Campus Center, 100 George Street, New Brunswick. The talk is sponsored by the Allen and Joan Bildner Center for the Study of Jewish Life at Rutgers University and is free and open to the public. Free parking is available.
