We have chosen to investigate the reasons why memorials have been built, to look at whose memory is being honored, and to examine the responses to these memorials. The creation of an exhibition and the production of this book presented the opportunity for an analytic perspective. In the process, we have neither created another memorial nor have we solely explored the field of Holocaust art. Rather, we have attempted to reveal the nature of the creative process through the discussion of specific examples of a number of memorials, and we have tried to understand their meaning and the reaction to them in the many places where they exist. - Preface.
