Example text

Its significance increases the more the irrational element becomes visible in the European debates. The regularity of these debates, their mass appeal, their clear chronology, permanent division of roles, and most important, their desperate lack of conclusions clearly point toward an element of myth within them, an element that demands recognition. The chronology of these debates is as follows. The starting point is normally provided by a film (such as Claude Lanzmann’s Shoah or Agnieszka Arnold’s Neighbors), a book (Daniel Goldhagen’s Hitler’s Willing Executioners or Jan Tomasz Gross’s Neighbors), or an exhibition (The Crimes of the Wehrmacht, held by the Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung).

The reader is exposed to minute details of the collective murder and is confronted with extremely disturbing images, such as that of men playing football with a woman’s head. Readers are also exposed face to face with individual victims and perpetrators. 10 Of course we should be aware that such a detached scholarly approach dominated Polish postwar historiography. At the same time dominant historical accounts either contained false representations of Polish-Jewish relations or ignored these relations altogether.

14 With the involvement of historians, “accurate, critically tested memory work is related to the kind of active forgetting of the past, or letting bygones be bygones”—so that social energy involved in the banishing of the nightmare could at last be released. One could agree with LaCapra’s position on the obligations befalling students of the past. Accordingly, the argument that bad intentions, insufficient knowledge, and desire for sensationalism underlie diminishing trust in traditional historians would become just as misleading as reducing the idea of post-traumatic culture to the cynical “Holocaust industry” thesis.
