Summary
How can a society communicate a collective trauma? This book offers a cross-media analysis of the operation of the Israeli media over the past six decades on Holocaust Remembrance Day, one of Israeli's most sacred national rituals. It investigates the way in which variables such as medium, structure of ownership, genre and targeted audiences shape the collective recollection of traumatic memories. Following their previous conceptual work on media memory, the authors argue that a combination of the aforementioned factors, anchored in the political arena as well as in the realm of media practices and conventions, lead the Israeli media to operate on Holocaust Remembrance Day in a manner that 'acts out' the collective trauma. Thus, the underlying narrative that is performed by the media on Holocaust Remembrance Day frames the Holocaust as a current, ongoing Israeli event rather than an event that took place in Europe and ended decades ago
