This study centers on museums’ commenting platforms as ‘stance-rich’ media (Du Bois 2007:151) by exploring the communicative affordances of a visitor book at the Florida Holocaust Museum and assaying museum visitors’ texts (3,064). These texts are similar in their morally indignant judgment of the Holocaust and their alignment with the museum, but disparate in positioning and participation framework.
