Example text

And so this section of the Zionist movement retained this date in Israel as well. As mentioned in the Introduction, in 1951 (a number of months after the Chief Rabbinate had set its date for the commemoration of the Holocaust), the Knesset passed the initial decision that declared the 27 of the Hebrew month of Nisan as ‘Holocaust and Ghetto Uprising Remembrance Day, a perpetual day of memory for the Jewish people’. The law was finally enacted in 1959. 4 It is important to note that the national memorial rituals were not immediately and fully embraced by Israel’s citizens.

While other newspapers emphasized their writers’ non-journalistic sources of authority to commemorate the Holocaust, Haaretz relied in its coverage to a large extent on its regular staffers, hence stressing their professional source of authority. Furthermore, Haaretz consistently published translated articles, originally published by foreign newspapers and thus drew on professional (local and foreign) journalistic authority and not national or biographic sources of authority. The different usees of sources of authority by Haaretz accords with the way in which it shaped its alternative memorial narrative.

In other words, we explore the context and conditions that gave those writers the mandate to shape the collective memory in the daily newspapers. Our main argument is that the most dominant writers needed more than one source of authority, and that it was only the combination of a number of sources of authority that gave the writer his or her status. Moreover, over the years we have noticed changes in the hierarchy of the various sources of authority, although a combination of a number of them is mostly still required.
