This chapter, titled Part III The Holocaust and the Nakba:The Deployment of Traumatic Signifiers, revolves around an exceptional encounter between a woman who was one of the first painters of the Holocaust events and a man who had been, for many years, one of the most important authors of Nakba iconography. This encounter expresses the interrelations between the artistic representations of the Holocaust and the Nakba, in terms of trauma and the structuring of collective memory. This chapter focuses on the iconographic influences of Holocaust representation seen in the works of Lea Grundig and on the representation of the Nakba in Abed Abdi’s works.
