Israel's relationship with the collective memory of the Holocaust (Shoah in Hebrew) and the violent narrative of its founding in the late 1940s clashes with the past experiences of succeeding generations of Palestinian Israelis (about 20 percent of Israel's population) whose troubled dual identity and inheritance of trauma reaches back to the Nakba, the Arabic word for what Jewish Israelis call the War of Independence. Both Shoah and Nakba mean "Catastrophe." How does the Palestinian catastrophe echo now for Jewish Israelis and how does that echo inform their understanding of the political, and physical, landscapes of their country? For both Arabic and Jewish Israelis, the remembered history of traumatic pasts has shaped their understanding of who they are as a people. Contested Land, Contested Memoryshows how these complicated histories play out today and how they frame Israel's possibilities for peace.
