Homework Answer on Holocaust survivals in Israel
After the Holocaust, most Jews decided to go back to Israel their motherland and rebuild their lives at the very least. A memorial known as the Yad Vashem was built to safeguard the memory of the Holocaust and to impart its meaning to future generations. Yad Vashem is currently a dynamic and vibrant location for an international and intergenerational encounter that contains documents and research that are meant for the commemoration of the catastrophic event in Jewish history.
The research seeks to highlight the role of the Yad Vashem in commemorating the Holocaust and analyze attitudes that dictate how the Holocaust shaped Israeli Identity.Currently in the State of Israel, there are 250,000 of Holocaust survivors, a country that is only marking 60 years of independence (The Foundation for the Benefit of the Holocaust Victims in Israel 1). A number of current survivors represents about half of those who came to the country since it was founded.
The survivors living in Israel made a profound impact in the society as they fully took part in charting the course of the nation. The Holocaust had left the Jews so devastated that some lacked hope in life and even their religion. However, the majority had hope and discovered inner resources that they could use to forge new lives for themselves and collectively share their stories and form one of the triumph of the human spirit regardless of the calamities they underwent.
