Cultural and memorial projects often present the end of the Holocaust and the creation of the state of Israel in a narrative of liberation and redemption. This work seeks to critically examine the impact of such events — albeit in vastly different ways — on both Jews and Palestinians, by disrupting this narrative arc as depicted for example in the film Schindler's List and Holocaust memorial museums.
