IN THE MONUMENT examines the evolution of Holocaust inspired monument building in the last 70 years. Monuments, like other pieces of public art, need to evolve and be ready for change. What makes one monument speak for centuries and others disappear without a trace?

World renowned architect Daniel Libeskind (Jewish Museums in Berlin, Copenhagen and San Francisco), prolific scholar James E. Young (The Texture of Memory, Writing and Rewriting the Holocaust), museum designer Ralph Appelbaum (U.S. Holocaust Museum, Canadian Museum for Human Rights), visual artist Esther Shalev-Gerz (Hamburg-Harburg Monument Against Fascism) and many other knowledgeable artists, architects and educators share their thoughts on the history and the future of Holocaust memorialization. Through the presentation of the last stage in the design competition for the Holocaust Monument in Ottawa, Canada, the film illuminates what it's like to represent the Holocaust with art and design.
