English abstract
In this chapter I explore Memorial Art, Monuments and the Politics of Memory in the cities of Hamburg, Germany and Haifa, Israel – two migrant, merchant and multiethnic harbour cities, each with interwoven histories of conflict and war. The chapter will analyse the conceptual and spatial strategies of a range of memorial projects and sites, focusing on the potential of the various projects and monuments to involve the public in a continuous engagement with the past and the present.
