Un lieu de mémoire franco-américain ambigu : la « Maison de l’Amérique à Saint-Dié-des-Vosges », de 1890 à nos jours

Abstract : Saint-Dié-des-Vosges considers itself from the last third of the nineteenth century as « godmother of America », because of the publication in 1507 of print items mentionning for the first time the name of America. In 1890, a local scholar thinks he managed to locate the specific location of the house where these documents would have been prints. Thenceforth, this house gradually become a place of memory, whose peak takes place between a few years before the World War I and the few years after the World War II. Destroyed in 1944, a piece of wall is conserved to symbolise the friendship between St-Die and the United-States of America. The historical feature of this house is increasingly disputed, so the last piece of wall is destroyed un 1962. From that moment, this place of memory have been fading away but have been knowing some jolts episodically.
