The past 25 years has seen an extraordinary boom in a new kind of cultural complex: the memorial museum. These seek to research, represent, commemorate, and teach on the subject of dreadful, violent histories. With World War and Holocaust memorials as precursors, the kinds of events now recognized include genocide in Armenia, Cambodia, Rwanda, and the Balkans, state repression in Eastern Europe, apartheid in South Africa, terrorism in the US, political 'disappearances' in Chile and Argentina, massacres in China and Taiwan, and more. This book is the first of its kind to 'map' these new institutions and cultural spaces, which, although varying widely in size, style, and political situation, are nonetheless united in their desire to promote peace, tolerance, and the avoidance of future violence. Moving across nations and contexts, Memorial Museums critically analyzes the tactics of these institutions and gauges their wider public significance.
