‘From ‘Never Forgetting’ to ‘Post-Remembering’ and ‘Co-Witnessing’: Memory Work for the Twenty-First Century’, written by Irene Kacandes, examines the rhetorical, political, and ethical stakes of the terms used for remembering the Holocaust. Kacandes deploys a model of what she terms ‘co-witnessing’ in her reading of literary texts and documentary films, and suggests that, in our contemporary world, we must create a culture of witness that can both speak truth to the wrongs perpetrated in the past and call attention to forms of injustice as they occur today.
