Normandy: History & Memory

On the recent Dean’s Honor Society trip to Normandy, I contemplated the function of memorials and their effect on collective memory. What is the connection between history and memory, and how do monuments play into this dynamic? Using prose and personal photos I took on the trip, I decided to gather my thoughts and conclusions in the form of a Google virtual tour, which you can visit by clicking the image below.
