Abstract:

This article addresses some of the ethical issues that arise as a result of the uneasy vacillation between two competing modes of visual aesthetics. Focusing on the dissonance between documentary and surrealistic modes in With Raised Hands, this article assesses the film's usefulness as a contribution to the 'postmemory' of the Holocaust.
