This article deals with the intersections between oral and audiovisual sources, and also with their digital and online usability, in the field of Holocaust memory. After a brief methodological introduction on the problems linked to the relationships between truth and testimonies, and also on the possibility and the need to visually represent the «unspeakable», a few cases will be examined in the perspective of the latest Holocaust public memorialization, with a particular reference to the Italian context. The representation of the survivors on the screen, and also their serial presence in several online mass platforms, will be analyzed in a post-memorial perspective, in order to show the intermediality between the building of the historical imageries and the present context. The urgency of rethinking this process is even more pressing due to the passing of the last Holocaust survivors, forcing all the historians to reshape their tools to study, analyze, narrate and divulge a history and a memory that are more and more tending towards an indiscriminate relativization.
