Five police officers were among the casualties.03:00 28.11.15 | 0 comments
I would be interested to see how these figures compare in other countries, where the trauma of the holocaust (may) play a smaller role in defining Jewish identity and rhetorically (or otherwise) justifying the status and actions of the community. More provocatively, the question is, whether Israeli society can be thought to be responsible for some of this. Certainly not for the holocuast, but for their (mis)appropriation of the holocaust history. Perhaps the constant deployment of holocaust and nazi rhetoric are preventing third generation survivors from working through the trauma. (It is needed by the state.) I'm a third generation survivor and frankly, I don't have these issues, neither do many of my friends.
