When the European Jews were destroyed, transformed to ashes and not converted to the New Jew, conceptually speaking, half of this Zionist scheme was accomplished by the Nazis--the Old Jew ceased to exist. The tragic entanglement of Zionism with Nazism, on the conceptual level, has unremittingly blemished the relation between the children of Zionist Utopia and the memory of the Holocaust. Guilt and its social manifestations in relation to the Holocaust occupy the 1980s Shadow Cinema.
