Let the Memorial Hill Remember [Hebrew]

Holocaust Representation in Israeli Popular Culture

Resling 2014

The collective official memory of the Holocaust in Israel was and is imbued with pathos and agony, and generates clear links between the Holocaust and its Zionist lesson. From the 1980's onward, a new unofficial path of remembrance began taking shape in tandem. It is an alternative path - some might say subversive - that seeks to remember, but differently. This book focuses on the new cultural memory of the Holocaust. By analyzing films, literature, journalism, theatre, plastic art, and poetry, from the 1980's onward, the book presents the new aspects of representation: the politicization of the Holocaust; the combination of Holocaust and Humor and the new perspectives on the Holocaust by Mizrahi (Jews from Asia and North Africa, and their descendants) artists.
