Críticas:

'This brilliant book reminds us of how Hiroshima and Auschwitz were first paired in the Cold War emotional imaginary and explicates beautifully the tensions between messages of peace and commodification of atrocity, and between instrumentalization and sanctification of survivors.' Dagmar Herzog, City University of New York

'Through his rich and thought-provoking study of commemoration at Hiroshima, Ran Zwigenberg opens up the novel topic of how World War II was remembered in different ways the world over. Full of both comparative and transnational insights, this book is not only insightful about Japanese history but also intimates a promising set of inquiries into global memory culture.' Samuel Moyn, Harvard University

'In a major contribution to memory studies, Zwigenberg controversially links Hiroshima and the Holocaust through the figure of the 'victim-hero' in the stories we tell of both of them. His conclusions are unsettling but necessary.' John Whittier Treat, Yale University

'Zwigenberg charts the course of how the citizens of Hiroshima, and the Japanese in general, transformed the city from a site that longed for peace in the postwar period to a place of remembrance of war horrors in more recent decades … recommended.' Choice
