Deterritorialising the Holocaust

Deterritorialising the Holocaust

(p.125) Chapter 7 Deterritorialising the Holocaust
Deleuze and the Contemporary World

Adrian Parr

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter aims to explore the connection between history and memory, and analyses the deterritorialisation of the Holocaust. It suggests that there are two kinds of memory – singular and reterritorialising – and explains that the reterritorialising function of memory is developed by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in their A Thousand Plateaus. The analysis of different forms of Holocaust remembrance in the context of Austrian national historiography and Israeli national identity reveals how the Holocaust functions as a reactionary ground of identification.

Keywords:   Holocaust, history and memory, deterritorialisation, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus, Austrian national historiography, Israeli national identity, group identification
