Memorials

Memorials are sites of memory, remembrance and learning about the past. What stories can be told at sites of actual historical violence, dehumanization and extermination? What role do authentic historical locations play? Who does the remembering? What and who is being remembered and how? What would multidirectional remembrance look like in a “migration society” such as in Germany?

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: The Danger of a Single Story

“Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.” (Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 2009)
