This curriculum focuses on how the remnants of the Holocaust emerged from the abyss of the ghettos and the death camps to rebuild their lives anew. Liberation did not end the agony of the Jews. When the survivors returned to their native lands, they found their families destroyed and their homes inhabited by other people. Some, as in Kielce, Poland, were brutally murdered. The refugees languished in Displaced Persons’ camps dotted across Europe until they were able to immigrate – legally or illegally – to the Land of Israel and other countries and return to life.
