The Politics of Memory
This essay highlights the recent developments in the study of Arab responses to Fascism and Nazism between 1933 and 1945. It analyzes old approaches and paradigms that have emphasized the sympathy and collaboration of Arab leaders and forces with Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. In criticizing these dominant research trends, the essay argues that it is mostly memories and political narratives produced in a later period which were responsible for such scholarly misunderstanding. This essay describes the politicization brought about by the establishment of Israel and the ensuing Palestinian-Arab-Israeli conflict on scholarly historical interpretations. It also brings new evidence and innovative research to the fore, demonstrating that many mainstream political leaders, intellectual forces and movements actually rejected and opposed the totalitarianism, racism, and imperialism of Nazism and Fascism in the public spheres. This introduction suggests new directions for further research on this critically important subject in Middle Eastern History.
