One of the main readings for this course revolves around the creation and implementation of America’s Holocaust Museum. Now situated just south of the Mall on Independence and 14th Street SW here in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum took years to be built and had to negotiate the contested terrain of memory, remembrance, ownership, and design. Edward T. Linenthal’s Preserving Memory: The Struggle to Create America’s Holocaust Museum goes into great detail on how all of that unfolded; however, his revised edition ends at the turn of the 21st century. For this assignment, you need to read the book, visit the museum virtually (or refer to a previous pre-pandemic visit), and then write a five-page paper summarizing your thoughts on the entire experience. Some questions to consider: are the experiences in the book adequately reflected in the museum today? What do you think were the most important themes found in the book? Are those themes found in the museum? Has the museum expanded, changed, and/or revised itself since the book was originally published? We will spend a class session discussing the book, the museum, and the ethical responsibilities of museums and museum professionals. Due Date – December 2nd
