Abstract / Description of output

This chapter, written in the centenary year of the founding of the IWM in 1917, aims to give an overview of the Holocaust representation in the Imperial War Museum Holocaust Exhibition (2000–2020) as linked to public national discourses on the Holocaust and national identity in Britain. The focus is on the years preceding the opening of the IWMHE in 2000 to its renewal in 2020, thus addressing a distinctive period of public historiography of the Holocaust in the IWM of just over twenty years. The chapter concludes with a reflection on academic assessments of the IWMHE and its contribution to discussions of British national identity.
