Title of Research: 
"A World of Difference: The Representation of the Holocaust, Holocaust Survivors and their Rehabilitation in the Films and Journalism of Zionist Organizations in Eretz-Israel and the USA"

This research analyses the representation of the Holocaust, Holocaust survivors, and their rehabilitation process and reintegration into society, as reflected in the cinema and journalism of Zionist organizations in Eretz-Israel and the United States between 1945-1948. The research will show that the socio-cultural differences between Eretz-Israel and the United States resulted in differing representations of the Holocaust, Holocaust survivors, and their rehabilitation. The newsletters and films, many of them rare and hitherto un-researched, indicate that the narratives created in Eretz-Israel and the United States by journalists and film makers, while dealing with the same subjects (European Jews, The Diaspora, Holocaust, Holocaust survivors, the settlers of the land of Israel, the British Mandate, Arabs, and Eret- Israel) did so in very different ways.
