Abstract

From the resource: ""Scorched Places" has set itself the goal of contributing to the culture of remembrance.

How do those places, almost 90 years after the book burnings, look today?
What purpose do places fulfill today and how do we view them in the knowledge of the historical events?
Are there any visible signs of the memory of those places, and are local forms of memory work recognizable?
These are the questions that the project tackles.

In the course of time an atlas has been created. Current photographs bring selected perspectives into focus and make the forgotten places of book burnings visible. Interactive panoramas allow a discovery of those historical places. Background texts and historical materials invite viewers to search for clues. maps make it possible to localize the "Scorched Places"."
