Subverting Traditional Holocaust Commemoration in Israel

As a third generation Holocaust survivor I feel my connection to the subject differs from the previous generations’ connection – a matter I discuss from time to time on my blog. The show ‘Mabat Sheni’ (A Second Glance), on Israel’s TV Channel 1, featured an interesting segment this week called ‘Holocaust and Satire’. Directed by Michal Kafra, the segment discussed subversive and challenging interpretations of traditional Israeli Holocaust commemorations.

The segment has no English subtitles but I am not sure that is a bad thing. Here is part 1 of 2:
