Perfect Heroes: The World War II Parachutists and the Making of Israeli Collective Memory - Paperback

ISBN: 0299234843

[SR: 2313866], Paperback, [EAN: 9780299234843], University of Wisconsin Press, University of Wisconsin Press, Book, [PU: University of Wisconsin Press], University of Wisconsin Press, During World War II, the British military dropped several dozen parachutists from Palestine, including three women, behind enemy lines in Eastern Europe and the Balkans. These young soldiers, most of whom had fled Europe only a few years earlier, faced a double challenge: their British mission was to find pilots who had jettisoned over enemy territory and assist them in returning to Allied-occupied lands; their Zionist mission was to contact Jewish communities, assist them in rebuilding the local Zionist movement, and, when necessary, help their members escape from the Nazis. Seven of the parachutists lost their lives in this effort. In Perfect Heroes, an expanded and updated English adaptation of her Hebrew book Giborim le-mofet, Judith Tydor Baumel-Schwartz recounts the history of these parachutists' wartime escapades and also analyzes the ways that various segments of Israeli society--military, political, legal, educational, youth, literary, and artistic--used the parachutists' story over the course of fifty years to build a nationalist narrative and to promote their own partisan and, at times, contradictory agendas. Baumel-Schwartz also offers broader comparative discussions of how individuals were commemorated as WWII heroes and heroines in many countries, in service of national mythologizing and collective memory., 758914, Military, 268022, Britain, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758916, Social & Urban History, 268022, Britain, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758954, Middle East, 758932, Countries & Regions, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758928, Social & Urban History, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758858, Religious, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759190, Espionage, 758862, War & Espionage, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758920, World War II, 758862, War & Espionage, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772162, Cultural History, 772188, Local & Urban History, 772192, London, 271405, Multicultural History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 772040, Other Religions, 771714, Religious History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 10959971, Battles & Campaigns, 10960041, Alamein, 10960051, Arnhem, 10960071, Battle for Berlin, 10960021, Battle of Britain, 10960031, Battle of the Atlantic, 10960111, Battle of the Bulge, 10960061, Burma, 10959991, D-Day Landings, 10960001, Dunkirk, 10960121, Hurtgen Forest, 10960171, Iwo Jima, 10960091, Kursk, 10960101, Monte Cassino, 10959981, Pearl Harbour, 10960011, Stalingrad, 10960081, Tunis, 10959961, World War II 1939-1945, 771718, World History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 277432, History & Culture, 277424, Judaism, 58, Religion & Spirituality, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 276540, Jewish Studies, 276533, Multicultural Studies, 276411, Social Sciences, 60, Society, Politics & Philosophy, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
