TEDxFultonStreet: Barbara Stehle


This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The transformation of a Cambodian school into a torture chamber and outpost of the Khmer Rouge reveals the durability of human spirit and the emotional signals we communicate via architecture. Dr. Stehle explores the roles of "Places of Unbearable Memories", including the 9/11 memorial and the instruments of the Holocaust, in terms of how they bear physical witness to the events that took place in their confines.
