Issue 2: Reverberations
As we witness the passing of the survivor generation, the focus on the transmission of Holocaust memory intensifies. New approaches to testimony such as holograms are being trialed in museums across the globe, while more modest ventures including the analysis of early audio collections are also underway. Other avenues of representation, from exhibitions to film and the visual arts, literature and musical expression also continue to transform Holocaust memory through new and creative forms of transmission. The second issue of Musings seeks to explore the form and function of these representational forms, asking how the memories of the Holocaust they create influence and shape scholarly and popular understandings of this event.
