Who and What Should the City Remember?
A city is shaped by its history, both in its days of glory and during hardships. There are many urban memory practices that keep the memories of people and events alive: from traditional monuments and plaques to museums. Besides official monuments, many cities have spontaneous memorials initiated by citizens, like the Wall of Tsoy in Moscow.
