Hail, Salzburg! and Damn the Vortex: Historical Memory in Austria Revisited

While directing the CSB/SJU Austria Program in Fall 2004, Dr. Schroeder systematically sought out historical markers in an effort to analyze historical memory as it is presented in public spaces. This presentation, a sequel to his Friday Forum of April 2002, will examine a wide spectrum of historical markers in Salzburg as well as memorials pertaining to the Nazi era in several other towns.
