Description - Uncovering the Holocaust by Ewout Van Der Knaap

"Nuit et Brouillard" ("Night and Fog", 1955) by Alain Resnais augmented the impact of the Holocaust on many societies. This book examines its representation of the Holocaust and offers solid case studies on the reception of this famous film in different contexts and countries (Britain, France, Germany, Israel, the Netherlands and the USA). "Nuit et Brouillard" lends itself to a comparative history because it was the first film on the Holocaust with such an impact, because it played a crucial role in the dissemination and appropriation of images of the past, because discussions about it helped to define or find identity and to shape memory, and because even today it continues to unsettle viewers. This volume seeks to provide insight into the way politicians, cultural critics and the general public assimilated the Holocaust and continue to debate questions of cultural memory. Scholars and students interested in the Holocaust, in film, literature, memory, Jewish history and cultural politics will find these case studies highly instructive.
