Informations and abstract

Keywords: Holocaust Memory; Newsreeels; Post-War Italy; Audiovisual Media.

This essay focuses on references to the Holocaust in postwar Italian newsreels. After a brief overview of the Italian audiovisual cultural industry, the text examines all the newsreels which were produced in Italy between the end of the wii and when they stopped being shown in 1965. The aim is to study how the memory of the Holocaust was spread, or repressed, by conducting a textual analysis of all the episodes which were the sole source of audio-visual news in postwar Italy, at least until the advent of television in 1954.
