This chapter provides a background on the ways in which Jews and Poles have remembered, represented, and memorialized the Holocaust. It recounts the effort to renew dialogue between Jewish and Polish intellectuals, focusing on Jewish and Polish memories of the Holocaust as the central issue in contemporary Polish–Jewish relations. It also charts new territory in the exploration of neglected topics on the overall understanding of the divorce and subsequent ongoing reconciliation of Jewish and Polish memory. The chapter performs a significant act of memorialization and awareness of the importance of memory to the collective self-validation of Poles and Jews. It mentions the 'death imprint' that entailed prolonged humiliation and torture and more generalized psychic and bodily assaults, which intensely affected how Polish Jewish survivors remembered the Nazis' assault on Polish Jewry.
