This chapter provides the context for discourse on how cultural historians may further include comic strip references and comic books on the Holocaust and Hiroshima in their corpus of representations. Should the obliteration, devastation and institutionalised violence of these events impact on the nature of cultural record used? How can such history be appreciated using comics? The chapter posits a role for comics as cultural record, introducing the methodological connections that the book makes between trauma and transference with historiography.
