Materials of Culture & Holocaust

Collecting some data and would like to hear back from institutional members  working in museums and academic centers. Of special interest would be mission statements which are reflective of how the Holocaust is treated in your institution, what are the concepts of memory and concerns with authenticity.

Re: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Holocaust Remembrance Day speech

As an Oleh Hadash [new immigrant to Israel] (July 2013), son and brother of survivors, native of Transylvania -- escaping Communism as a child and immigrating to US with the assistance of HIAS -- and now a part of the Holocaust studies program at University of Haifa, I feel like the most ardent Zionist on the planet. The PM's speech gave me "goose bumps" but also made my skin crawl. The near exclusive contextualization of the Holocaust for the sake of an inclusive narrativization of national politics went well beyond remembrance.
