â€œMemory After Belsenâ€ examines changing understandings of the history and memory of the Holocaust, as it moves through the generations.
Who will tell the story of the Holocaust, once survivors are gone? Which version of the Holocaust will they emphasize? What happens when artists, writers and filmmakers appropriate the Holocaust for creative agendas? â€œMemory After Belsenâ€ addresses these and other challenges to Holocaust memory. The documentary follows the granddaughter of a Bergen-Belsen survivor to the place of her familyâ€™s destruction. Her journey provides a vehicle for exploring issues and tensions in the changing landscape of Holocaust memory. The film, geared toward high-school, college and general audiences, raises issues that are today uppermost on the minds of educators and human rights activists.
