This book offers the first gendered analysis of Israeli society and the Shoah (the Holocaust). The author employs personal narratives of nine Israeli daughers of Shoah survivors, writers and film makers, and a feminist re-reading of official and unofficial Israeli and Zionist discourses to explore the ways in which the relationship between Israel and the Shoah has been gendered in that the Shoah was "feminized" through the key elements of victimhood and shame, while Israel was "masculinized".
