Interpreting the Holocaust in the 21st Century
A special program with Dov Goldstein
Light refreshments provided

Since the end of the Second World War, countries, cities and individuals have been coming to terms of how to interpret and memorialize the Holocaust. What role does a Monument play in the collective memory of the Holocaust? How have different nations reflected upon their own history and relationship to the Holocaust? With the creation of a new national Holocaust Monument in Canada, how do we interpret events and atrocities that occurred more than 70 years ago in a country where these events did not occur?

As Principal Consultant at Lord Cultural Resources, Dov Goldstein has managed some of the firm’s largest projects in Canada and around the world. Dov has over 20 years of experience in cultural planning, exhibition development and project management successfully realizing hundreds of small and large scale projects for museums, cities and other cultural institutions. In addition to managing projects at Lord, Dov has led and participated in strategic plans, cultural master plans, interpretive plans, market analysis and client representation for a variety of local and international projects, including the National Centre for Jewish Heritage in Toronto, Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg , Design Exchange and most recently the National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa.
