Prisoners of History

What Monuments to the Second World War Tell Us About Our History and Ourselves

Keith Lowe

Keith Lowe investigates memorials to the Second World War around the world, focusing on national attitudes to how victims and heroes are depicted, and what countries choose to remember or ignore about their wartime history. Providing broader context to the ongoing discussion about their purpose and meaning, the author suggests that the merits of erecting and maintaining public monuments tend to outweigh the problematic aspects.
