Description

Remembering the dead may have been the very first purpose of architecture, and this function survives in the mementoes built as reminders of 20th-century wars and genocides. Eduardo Prieto gives a history of modern memorials, followed by coverage of six recent works commemorating battles and slaughters of the last hundred years or so, among them: the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Memorial in France, built on the occasion of the centenary of World War I, the Katyn Museum in Warsaw, which recalls the slaying of Polish military officials in 1940, and the Space of Memory in Lima, which honors those killed by terrorism in Perú during the last two decades of the century.
