"Over the past century, cultural destruction has wrought catastrophic results across the globe. This war against culture is not over - it's been steadily increasing. Based on the book of the same name by Robert Bevan, 'The Destruction of Memory' tells the whole story, revealing the decisions of the past that allowed the issue to remain hidden in the shadows for so many years." The film will be followed by a discussion with Tim Slade, director, and Prof. Maurizio Forte, Dept. of Classical Studies. The event is part of the Human Rights in Practice series presented by the International Human Rights Clinic and the Center for International and Comparative Law. Co-sponsored by Duke Dept. of Art, Art History, & Visual Studies; Duke Dept. of Classical Studies; Duke Human Rights Center at the Franklin Humanities Institute; Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics; Human Rights Law Society; and International Law Society.
