They Say there is a Land: Longing for Eretz Israel during the Holocaust

Head Curator: Vivian Uria

$62.00

The exhibition presents the longings for Eretz Israel felt by Jews from the rise of the Nazi party to power in Germany, through the outbreak of World War II and the destruction of European Jewry, and until the end of the war and the establishment of the State of Israel. Artworks, artifacts, diaries, letters and testimonies collected over the years at Yad Vashem give expression to the experiences, feelings and yearnings of those who created and bore them, and open a window to their inner world in the shadow of the events.
