Competing Memories feedback

The first three days of the Competing Memories Conference are over, and we have moved to the Westerbork Camp to summing up what discussed and presented during the seminar: many cases, different ideas about the future of research in Conflict Heritage Studies, but also dissonant positions about the role of Monuments/Museums/Memorieals in this concern.

More and more, there is the need to go beyond “sacralization” of memorial sites to foreseen a productive & participatory approach to war heritage.
