(p.286) Conclusion
From Monuments to Traces

Rudy Koshar

University of California Press

This book has emphasized that the memory landscape symbolized and shaped German perceptions about the past and the nation, and that the continuity of the memory landscape depended on the evolution of its forms. Monuments, ruins, reconstructions, and traces are used in contesting strategies to build an enduring national tradition. The book has focused on a continuity based on recurring forms of collective memory manipulated by the Nazis, but which was also contributed to a deeper cultural and political tradition.

Keywords:   memory landscape, monuments, ruins, reconstructions, traces, collective memory, Nazis
