Abstract:

"The Banality of Denial examines the attitudes of the State of Israel and its leading institutions toward the Armenian Genocide and seeks both to examine the passive, indifferent Israeli attitude towards the Armenian Genocide, and to explore active Israeli measures to undermine attempts at safeguarding the memory of the Armenian victims of the Turkish persecution." "The book also explores Israeli attitudes toward the phenomenon of genocide in general, including an analysis of concrete case studies, such as the tragedies in Tibet, Rwanda, and Yugoslavia." "This volume is the second part of a project that examines Jewish-Israeli attitudes toward the Armenian Genocide. In this book, moral, philosophical, and theoretical questions are of paramount importance. In many regards, this book is as much about Israeli society and Jewish values as it is about the Armenian Genocide per se."--BOOK JACKET.
