To Bear Witness: Holocaust Remembrance at Yad Vashem

Editors: Bella Gutterman and Avner Shalev


Yad Vashem, The Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority, was established by a Knesset law to constitute the center for the memories of the entire Jewish people. Its new museum cluster was constructed so as to be able to renew its capacity in every generation and respond to new needs, mediating between the old world that was destroyed and life rebuilt. This book leads the reader through the events at Yad Vashem. It is not only a story of the Jews but of humankind, with personal stories, documents, works of art, films and thousands of photographs of a world that is no more. Some of the material is published for the first time. “High quality and large quantity of information on the Shoah, Yad Vashem’s role, departments and activities, with the emphasis on the Museums… A valuable book… A must for each home, perfect tool for learning and teaching about the Shoah.” [Eli Schiller, Ariel] “This is a splendid book which should be in every family bookshelf so that all generations of the family can read it, peruse it and find answers to their questions.” [Marianne Malka Picard, Memoire vive]
