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. David Silberklang, as editor, has displayed a remarkable talent for balancing the output of grizzled veterans with the challenging findings of younger researchers… 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.

Winning Poster 2015

""Designing Memory"" Competition

 The Official Commemorative Poster

The winning poster in the ""Designing Memory"" competition. 

The winning design was selected by a distinguished panel of artists and Holocaust education experts out of almost 100 entries, and is being distributed and displayed across Israel to mark Yom HaShoah 2015. 

The winning poster of this year's Holocaust Remembrance Day was created by Anat Sandro Sevilia.

The poster is characterized by modest simplicity that gives emphasis to the complex subject it deals with. On the one hand is the life that has been shredded which represents the Holocaust and on the other hand, is the wish to recreate that which was destroyed.

Winning Poster 2017

""Designing Memory"" Competition

 The Official Commemorative Poster

The winning design was selected by a distinguished panel of artists and Holocaust education experts out of almost 100 entries, and is being distributed and displayed across Israel to mark Yom HaShoah 2017. This Poster was designed by Tamar Odaya Bodnar. Out of the numbers that were part and parcel of a systematic, deliberate and inhumane campaign, the figure of a single Jewish child stands clear. The shape has depth, representing an entire human world that was abruptly cut down and cultural ideas that were irreversibly changed. It is precisely in view of the intention to wipe out the relentlessly persecuted victims' identities and humanity that their aspirations and hope to cling to their lives, to the full extent and as meaningfully as possible, emerge with all their vitality. The vague figure reflected through the numbers serves as a reminder of the obligation to remember the victims as human beings with unique and distinct identities. The image is very meaningful, giving visual expression to the complex nature of Holocaust remembrance.
