A City Remembers: Memorial Monuments in Tel Aviv-Yafo


A City Remembers is a tapestry of municipal commemorations in Tel Aviv-Yafo that are constitutive of the city's landscape of remembrance and everyday urban experience. The book provides historical and photographic documentation and interpretive analysis of gravestones and monuments that the Municipality of Tel Aviv (since 1950: Tel Aviv-Yafo) initiated or was involved in planning, financing, and building, in the course of the city's history. Thematically structured and ordered chronologically, the book offers a unique perspective on urban memorial monuments as material artifacts that facilitate the intersection of history, memory, space, and landscape.
