Memorial Walls, Colfax
Colfax Branch Library

Thursday, May 31, noon
Ray Sun, Professor of History at WSU presents, “Remembering through Walls and Names:  The Vietnam Veterans Memorial and Subsequent Memorials to War and Genocide” on Thursday, March 15 at 12:15 at the Methodist Church in Colfax.  The presentation discusses the Vietnam Memorial, and the impact it has had in shaping subsequent memorials. Many now adopt the “wall of names” concept, including the 9/11 memorial and a major planned Holocaust memorial in Amsterdam. Sun explores the commonalities and differences between the Wall and the later memorial sites. 
This presentation is being held in conjunction with the weekly Colfax Rotary meeting. It is free and open to the public. If you would like to order lunch contact Kristie Kirkpatrick at 509-397-4366 and arrive by noon. Otherwise, just come to listen!
