Stolpersteine: The Intersection of Art and Holocaust Memorialization

Hosted By: Temple Emanu-El, Haverhill MA

Stolpersteine, stumbling stones, are commemorative brass plaques installed by the German artist Gunter Demnig in front of the homes of victims of Nazi persecution. The plaques are controversial, triggering myriad responses: they have been celebrated, imitated, and vandalized. These counter-memorials, a genre of art and memory activism, are alternative sites of commemoration, creating uncharted, improvised, unscripted modes of memory.

Join Dr. Rachel Lehr and Professor Ruth Mandel for a multimedia presentation examining the intersection of art and memory.
