Genealogy of Damnatio Memoriae, Alsace, 2013

2 Carved trees 500 cm

Genealogy of Damnatio Memoriae, Alsace, consists of two trees, one carved with a list of French names, the other echoing these with their German equivalents. It refers to damnatio memoriae under the Third Reich, when French signs and even personal names were replaced with German ones. Local people will immediately recognise these traumatic changes to their identity.
