The Holocaust Memorial Museum uncovers and explores the sacred underpinnings of these increasingly influential institutions. It reveals and traces the transformation of ancient Jewish symbols, rituals, archetypes and narratives in these sites, arguing that the effect of these 'built theodicies' is to turn 'what the Holocaust was', and 'what it has come to mean', into largely redemptive narratives. Avril Alba brings these insights to bear on three major Holocaust memorial museums in the US, Israel and Australia, demonstrating how in each institution the mythic scope of these sacred visions radically transforms the meaning of the history on display, producing diverse and sometimes conflicting conclusions as to the significance and utility of Holocaust memory in the present.Y.
