Does Auschwitz, in its current form, work as a dark heritage site, or does it do a disservice to those who perished there?
I want a 4000 word essay on this question with good research and resources that support the question.
The essay should take the form of a discussion rather than a description. The objectives should have an introduction with an overview background of the concentration camp and would explain when, why how did it happen? who built it?
In the body:- Is there any difference to how the concentration camp was functioned compared to how to memorial site/ museum is run right now? Who are the main theorist of dark heritage? What are the key ideas, and can you use them as a framework of analysis for the Auschwitz museum?
Key themes: Preservation, Reuse, remembrance, dark heritage, architecture, functionalism
The essay should have succinct references (harvard style) in text and in bibliography, and images in the body of the essay to support the argument.
