This book uses the concept of "vectors" of memory to designate the conduits of that memorial activity,and examines in detail a range of vectors -historiography, war crimes trials, novels and films- that have focused public attention and debate in this era of so-called "commemorative obsession". In the course of these investigations, concepts such as "sites of memory", "testimony", "collective memory" and "trauma" are critically examined in a number of historical, juridical and representational contexts.
