It is during this period, while Halbwachs was in Strasbourg, that the material translated into English as On Collective Memory (1925/1992) was published. Halbwachs was tragically denied the opportunity to complete further work on this subject. In 1944 he was arrested by the Gestapo and transported to the Buchenwald concentration camp, where he died the following year. A second volume of writings on social remembering—The Collective Memory—was published posthumously (1950/1980). Douglas (1980) argues that Halbwachs’s writing on memory occupies a special place in his published work.
