Anne Frank, Bergen-Belsen, and the Polysemic Nature of Holocaust Memories

From: Rhetoric & Public Affairs
Volume 4, Number 3, Fall 2001
pp. 349-374 | 10.1353/rap.2001.0043


The polysemic nature of Holocaust memories has meant that various communities have conflicting remembrances of the World War II concentration camps. These contentious and fragmentary memories have influenced our understanding of the symbolic and material meanings of the Holocaust and its victims. The author provides a critical memories study that looks at some of the key rhetorical shifts in the generational remembrances of Anne Frank and Bergen-Belsen.
