"History Personified"

May 27, 2016

As we enter Memorial Day weekend, we take a look at the history of U.S. national memorials. Dr. Harriet F. Senie has written a book entitled, "Memorials to Shattered Myths: Vietnam to 9/11," which deals with memorials and how they fall short in their intention. Does education take a backseat to emotion? How are the Vietnam War, the Oklahoma City bombings, and 9/11 memorials connect to the Holocaust? We discuss these questions and more on this week's episode.
