After reading Marianne Hirsch’s journal article The Generation of Postmemory, which specificially deals with postmemory in terms of the Holocaust, I decided to create a mindmap detailing her thoughts and explanations on postmemory as an aid to understand this concept better.
I will include a PDF version of it here as well as the text might be a little small on the clickable image above.
Marianne Hirsch also discusses postmemory in this video, which again highlights most of the points mentioned above in my mindmap.
