Wendy Koenig, associate professor of art, has long been interested in Holocaust studies and found a new dimension to research as she visits museums: the atmosphere created by sound and sound design. "I realized I'd never read anything about sound in this field," she says. That inspired her to spend the past two summers experiencing and evaluating the use of sound in Holocaust museums in Skokie, IL, Washington, D.C., Augusta, ME, Detroit and at the Holocaust Tower at the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany.
