CSU Professor Presents Examination of Holocaust Memorials in Germany

German Identity After the Holocaust: Memorials and Monuments in Today’s Germany will be
presented from 6-7:30 pm Tuesday, June 20, at the Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures. Peter
Erickson, Associate Professor of German in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at
Colorado State University, will explore Holocaust memorials in relation to German identity.

“What does it mean to be German, and what parts of German history should be commemorated?” asks
Dr. Erickson. “And what have Holocaust monuments and memorials meant for debates about German
identity?” Dr. Erickson will also make comparisons with the controversies over monuments in the
United States.

Admission to the program is $5 per person, and reservations are available at globalvillagemuseum.org.
The presentation is in conjunction with Deutschland Through Students’ Eyes in the Museum’s Main
Gallery. The exhibit, which runs through July 22, is curated by German language students at Fort
Collins High School.

The Global Village Museum is located at 200 West Mountain Avenue, and Museum hours are 11 am to
5 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Regular admission is $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, $1 for
ages 4-15, and free for children three and under. Adult tours receive discounted admission of $3/person.
