This chapter charts the cinematic itineraries and maps the sites of memory, or the lieux de mémoire, of the Holocaust in Eastern Europe by means of a discussion of three main case studies, the documentaries My Grandfather’s House: The Journey Home, Divan and Shoah par balles: L’histoire oubliée. This investigation is based on spaces associated both with collective histories of the destruction of the Jews at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators and with the familial connections to the places where the Jews lived before the Holocaust. The main focus is on the process of transmission of trauma from those who witnessed the events to that postgeneration for which the traumatic occurrences that preceded their births appear to have become memories in their own right.
