    Overview

    Summary
    This is an interdisciplinary examination exploring when and how Americans first collectively began to publicly discuss the genocide of the European Jews. This study recounts the manner in which fiction, print media, Hollywood film, and other popular forms of representation functioned as the primary discursive arenas wherein the story of the genocide was constructed, contested, and transformed in America between 1950 and 1967. I have found that the shifting and gradually evolving nature of these images and stories has had a profound and enduring influence on public conceptions of the genocide in America and greatly impacted the subsequent flood of material related to the Holocaust released in the immediate aftermath of the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.
