Synopsis

This book examines how the press in Great Britain, Sweden and Finland responded to the Holocaust in the immediate aftermath of the Second World War; what type of meanings the press constructed about the Holocaust, how the horror of the Holocaust in general, and the role of Jewish suffering in particular was mediated to the readers of mainstream newspapers in Britain, Sweden and Finland. It argues that in all three countries examined here, representations of the Holocaust were, in the first instance, dependent on how they could be fitted into each country's nationalistic narratives. By way of examining the press discourses on the liberation of the camps, the Nuremberg trial and the Jewish immigration to Palestine, among other themes, this work challenges many conventional wisdoms about the marginalisation of the Holocaust, especially the strength of the Cold War ethos in the process of marginalisation.
