Dr. Dan Porat, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

After the deceleration of independence of the State of Israel in 1948, thousands of Holocaust survivors arrived in the newly established country. When they arrived in Israel, however, locals did not want to hear about their trauma or learn about their suffering. In Israel's education system, the Holocaust was an unwelcome topic. It was only after the 1967 Six Day War that a gradual change in the treatment of the Holocaust in Israel’s education system began, a change that culminated with Israelis today viewing the Holocaust as a cornerstone in their national identity, an event that they believe cannot and should not be compared to any other kind of Genocide. The lecture will discuss the reasons behind the changing attitudes in Israeli society and the education system toward the memory of the Holocaust.
