Summary
"The book is the first comparative study of the ways in which the Holocaust has been memorialized in Australia, Britain and New Zealand. It examines the processes by which the Holocaust entered Jewish and mainstream cultures, representations of the uniqueness and/or universality of the Holocaust, uses and abuses of the terminology and imagery of the Holocaust, the relationship between Holocaust remembrance and Jewish unity and identity, and interpretations of the lessons of the Holocaust. Despite the different national histories of Australia, Britain and New Zealand, and notwithstanding variations in Jewish community size and composition, the Holocaust has been memorialized in remarkably similar ways, although in many respects these are significantly different from the American experience."--BOOK JACKET
