The Holocaust Visual Archive collects the images and afterimages of the Holocaust disseminated in the vast landscape of visual culture, at the intersection where pop culture, cinema, memorial culture and modern art meet. Film sequences and posters, tv shows, books, magazine covers, graphic novels, comic books, museum brochures, advertisement, contemporary art and photography are gathered in the archive. The aim of the HVA is to collect and share materials for further studies and analyses on the visual heritage of the Holocaust in contemporary culture. Since the archive deals mainly with pop culture rather than with the high discourse on the Holocaust, disturbing and/or trivial images may appear occasionally: by no means do we intend to offend the memory of the victims. Images will be removed upon request of the copyright holder where applicable. The HVA was created in 2012 by Guido Vitiello and Andrea Minuz. Suggestions, materials and other contributions are welcome. Please contact us in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian or Italian at
