In the Monument examines the evolution of Holocaust inspired monument building in the last 70 years. With the help of world famous artists, scholars, architects we get to explore how monuments are made to endure and continue to resonate. Monuments, just like other pieces of public art, need to evolve and be ready for change. Presenting the last stage of the design competition for the Canadian Holocaust Monument and six shortlisted proposals, we get behind the scenes of what it’s like to represent the Holocaust with art and design.
Additional resources provided by USHMM to begin understanding the scope of the Holocaust.
Our mission is to teach the history of the Holocaust, applying its lessons to counter indifference, intolerance, and genocide.
