James E. Young: The Stages of Memory

James E. Young, distinguished university professor of English and Judaic studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, has served on juries that selected designs for the 9/11 Memorial and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin. In his new book, “The Stages of Memory: Reflections on Memorial Art, Loss, and the Spaces Between,” Young reflects on the expectations that countries bring to their painful memorial debates.
