Abstract

In lieu of an abstract, below is the article's first paragraph.

Many monuments stand to remind us of horror, violence and people lost. The Vietnam Memorial and Auschwitz are stark reminders of the consequences of war. How do we feel when reading the 58,325 names on "the Wall?" Can we sense the horror (when) inside a gas chamber? Memorials exist to provoke a somber reaction, promoting peace. Joan Didion, the author of Salvador, compares how the Metropolitan Cathedral and Pablo Picasso's Guernica convey their anti-war sentiments.
