Quentin Tarantino's film "Inglourious Basterds" (2009) deals with Nazi-occupied France during World War II, when a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as "The Basterds" are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. Contends that the Americanization of the Holocaust in Tarantino's film functions as a critique of American popular culture's tendency to adopt the Holocaust as a screen memory. The film uses postmodern parody to lay bare the ways in which Hollywood representations of the Holocaust have shaped (and sometimes distorted) public memory of the event.

Inglourious basterds (Motion picture)
This provocative and unique anthology analyzes Quentin Tarantino's controversial Inglourious Basterds in the contexts of cinema, cultural, gender, and historical studies. The film and its ideology is dissected by a range of scholars and writers who take on the director's manipulation of metacinema, Nazisploitation, ethnic stereotyping, gender roles, allohistoricism, geopolitics, philosophy, language, and memory. In this collection, the eroticism of the club-swinging and avenging Bear Jew, the dashed heroism of the role-playing French and German females, the patriotic fools and pawns, the amora.
