Summary :
How is the memory of the genocide preserved and transmitted in various Jewish communities around the world? What role does the Shoah play in the search for European identity? How is it interpreted in American culture? How do we commemorate the memory of the camps in Canada or Brazil? At a time when memory wars are unleashed on a planetary scale, and when this same memory of the Shoah appears exposed to recovery, instrumentalisation, even trivialization, it is time that historians, sociologists and philosophers question the contemporary Jewish being in this essential dimension. Alain Finkielkraut, Annette Wieviorka, Ilya Altman, Julien Bauer, Emeric Deutsch, Anne Grynherg, Kathy Hazan, among others, and under the direction of Dan Michman and Françoise S. Ouzan, explore here, through its major stages, the creation of the State of Israel at the Eichmann trial, from the series Holocaust to the pilgrimages to Auschwitz, this story always sensitive and always controversial. Crossed gazes that reveal the most crucial issues in transmission.
