In this article we analyze the graphic novel by Joe Sacco Footnotes in Gaza (2009), focusing on the different representations of the body. Sacco addresses a complex investigation into two massacres committed by Israel's armed forces on the Palestinian population of the Gaza Strip in 1956. We distinguish three uses of the body, which directly contribute to the testimonial force of the story: the hunting formula, the body as social cohesion and the corpse as persistence.
