Yad Vashem is the World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem. Its mission is to accumulate, research, and publish sources related to the Holocaust and to propagate the lessons and memory of the Holocaust.
Yad Vashem gives voice to the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. It tells the story of the victims of antisemitism, past and present. It is a stark reminder of humanity at its darkest. Yad Vashem combats ignorance and teaches the importance of overcoming racial and religious hatred.
The International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem encourages and supports worldwide scholarly research on Holocaust-related topics. The Institute is also active in publishing various publications, including the peer-reviewed, semi-annual scholarly journal Yad Vashem Studies. Since its inception, Yad Vashem Studies has featured path-breaking, thought-provoking articles about the Holocaust by leading researchers worldwide and is a forum for multi-disciplinary scholarly discussion.
Hannie has established an endowment fund to help support Yad Vashem’s annual expenditure budgets in research.
Thanks to this programme, excellent teachers can now smile to Israel and back.
