51. Echoes of the Holocaust in Modern Israeli Literature
The Holocaust and the creation of the state of Israel are probably the most important historical milestones in modern Jewish history. The main focus of this session is to explore the ways Israeli society deals with the Shoa as a significant influence on who we are and how we behave. We will discuss the reflections of the Holocaust in recent works by Amir Gotfreund and Lysie Doron, as well as some older ones by Grossman and Liebrect, Treinin, Guri and others. By doing so we will be able to address the changes in the understanding of the Holocaust from different Israeli perspectives.
