Revisiting and Remembering: Family Photographs and Holocaust Commemoration, Towers, Halls, and Cases

By Laura Levitt

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2010

The author explores the dilemmas and issues in familiarity with the permanent exhibition at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) and other exhibits which affect Holocaust memory. The author links experiences related to the Tower of Faces at the USHMM in 1994 and 1995 with an experience at the Yad Vashem, Israel's national Holocaust memorial museum to reflect on this critical intersection in Holocaust memory.
