Yad Vashem Studies is an academic journal featuring articles on the cutting edge of research and reflection on the Holocaust. Yad Vashem Studies is a must for any serious library seeking to offer the essential texts on the Nazi era and the Holocaust. “Yad Vashem Studies has been at the forefront of research into the Nazi persecution and mass murder of the Jews, its origins and its consequences… indispensable for researchers and teachers alike. No library that purports to offer students and teachers the essential historical texts on the Nazi era and the fate of the Jews can afford to be without Yad Vashem Studies.” [David Cesarani, The Journal of Holocaust Education] Beginning with volume 35, Yad Vashem Studies comes out twice annually, in spring and fall, making our contributors’ important research available to our readers more quickly and more readily. We have also redone our layout in order to make it more reader friendly. Our rigorous high standards remain unchanged.

Yad Vashem Calendar 2020-2021: The Return to Life

This year's calendar features items taken from Yad Vashem's extensive collections that document the survivors' unique experiences during the turbulent period following the end of World War II. In the wake of liberation, the survivors of the Holocaust grappled with a dichotomous reality: the joy of liberation juxtaposed with the anguish of the tragedy they had endured. They faced heartbreaking, existential dilemmas regarding their return to life and finding meaning in their survival. Nevertheless, the survivors immediately began to transform their new communities – the Displaced Persons (DP) camps, children's homes and internment camps – into centers of social, cultural and educational activity, preparing themselves for a new and more hopeful reality after the Holocaust. The artworks, artifacts and archival documents highlighted in this calendar reveal the survivors' tenacity of spirit as they sought to move towards the future and rebuild their personal lives as well as the legacy of the Jewish people – despite all that had been lost along the way.

Yad Vashem, World Holocaust Remembrance Authority, was established in 1953.  Located on the Mount of Remembrance, Yad Vashem is dedicated to Holocaust remembrance, education, documentation and research. Drawing on the memories of the past, Yad Vashem seeks to meaningfully impart the legacy of the Shoah for generations to come.
