History is a significant factor determing current individual and social development. <br /><br />Memory thereby shapes the character of present - personal and individual - thought and activity. <br /><br />Literally speaking, memory assumes that one does not close one’s eyes to reality. <br /><br />acting art of memory supports the perception of history and its underlying causes, the debate on form and content, and a vital culture of remembering. <br /><br />In this context, publicly perceptible projects which awaken memories of the Nazi period of German history and its continuous international repercussions are centrally relevant. <br />
