Idith Zertal, Israel's Holocaust and the Politics of Nationhood, Cambridge: CUSP, 2005

Γράφτηκε από Chryssoula Toufexis, Izabella Koukorava

 Idith Zertal, a leading member of the new generation of revisionist historians in Israel, presents through her analysis the way in which Israel's collective memory of death and trauma was created and re-produced, and how it has been processed, coded and put in use in Israel's public space, particularly during the half century which has lapsed since the destruction of the European Jewry. This book offers a new perspective on Israel, its history and the construction of national identity.
