Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book analyzes the dialectic relations between the two major components of the collective Jewish identity - the Holocaust and the state of Israel. The symbolic points for the beginning and the end of From Auschwitz to Jerusalem are the Eichmann trial in Israel and the founding of the Memorial Museum in Washington in 1993. At the first point the question was: has Israel the right to judge Eichmann in the name of the world Jewish people and at the second point, what is the Memorial representing: the unique Jewish tragedy or a universal problem? The research for the book was done on the basis of constant comparison between the discourses in Israel and the Diaspora, especially in the USA but also in England.
