The context of this article is memory processes in the wake of the terror that struck Norway on 22 July 2011. It takes as its theoretical point of departure the works of Jean Améry (1912–1978) after the Holocaust. In this article Améry's concept of «resentment» is used as the starting point for readings of Henrik Ibsen's «Brand» (1864) and the unrealized monument near Utøya, «Memory Wound», by Jonas Dahlgren (2014).
