Memorializing the persecution of Jews
This paper is about the 80 diptychs affixed to lampposts in the Bayerische Viertel (Bavarian Quarter) of Berlin’s Schöneberg neighborhood, that memorialize the persecution of Germany’s Jewry. This study draws its research interests from the sociology of memory, monument scholarship, and the socio-historical study of mass persecution. It explores how far the LL objects can be considered part of LL’s configuration of an area; what interests motivated its creation as a dimension of the local LL; what uses of semiotic and geosemiotic resources were made in this counter-monument in the public space’s construction; and how it confronts the socio-historic challenge of displaying in the LL of a borough of Berlin the Nazi mass persecution of Jews.
