For Germany, the memory of the Holocaust raises issues in very specific ways. This article describes the two ways in which the country has chosen to pass on the memory: conservation in museums on the one hand, in other words fixing and codifying historical events and their consequences for the present; on the other hand, bringing out actual experiences of those events, or in other words, staging historical fact through memorials and especially the visual media.
