Abstract

This project compared three major museums that present genocide and the Holocaust in North America. The three museums included the Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg Canada, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and The Museum of Memory and Tolerance in Mexico City. I am focusing on these three museums because all three are major museums located in North America with different views on the genocides that have occurred in modern times. My research explored how these various genocides are represented differently among these museums. By focusing on the museum displays I will analyze why they are represented in that way and what that means for the collective memory of each country. To do this I will analyzed the content and space dedicated to the Holocaust and genocide.
