Conclusion: Communicating Awe between Traditional and New Media

Oren Meyers, Eyal Zandberg, Motti Neiger

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This book set out to explore how societies communicate awe. It did so via an exploration of the ways in which Israeli mass media have narrated the memory of the Holocaust on Holocaust Remembrance Day, one of Israel’s most sacred national rituals throughout more than six decades, across a multitude of media and genres. In the closing chapter of our exploration, we would like to look first ‘backwards’ — that is, to provide an integrative overview of our study’s main findings and discusses their possible implications in the larger field of media memory studies (Neiger et al., 2011a). Consequently, we would like to look ‘forwards’ and offer an initial look at the ways in which Israel’s online media commemorates Holocaust Remembrance Day.
