On the Global and Local Representations of the Holocaust Tragedy
This chapter begins by presenting a comic strip,Non Sequitor, by Wiley. This strip of popular culture indicates that the universalization of the Holocaust is alive and well, even as the collective consciousness continually addresses fears of forgetting. Then, it provides a historical context for “The Social Construction of Moral Universals”. It examines how the movement, from a progressive tragic trauma narration created moral particularism alongside universalism, and fueled social splitting and antagonism at the same time as cooperation and expanded solidarity. This chapter also looks at Israeli Jews.
