Seymour, David (2012) "Good nations" and "bad nations":critical theory, judgement and the naturalisation of memory. International Journal for the Semiotics of Law, 25 (3). pp. 339-354. ISSN 0952-8059Full text not available from this repository.
This essay investigates the connections between representations of the Holocaust within public memory and within critical theory. It argues that far from offering a critique of that memory, critical theory unwittingly replicates many of its assumptions. This replication appears through acceptance of the assumed distinction between the “good nations” of Western Europe and the “bad nations” of Eastern Europe; those nations who have been remembered as unwilling collaborators, and those deemed more willing, respectively.
