In this lecture, Edward Linenthal discusses the observations that can be made about our society today based on the way that we recognize the heroes and victims of past conflicts. Using testimony from Holocaust survivors, from an officer of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, and from first responders to the Oklahoma City bombing, Linenthal will discuss the complex interplay between place and memory.
