Default Never forget? Report warns Holocaust studies neglected in Israel

Never forget? Report warns Holocaust studies neglected in Israel

Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities says Israel used to be at the vanguard of Holocaust research but is now slipping due to an overall decline in emphasis on the humanities and social sciences and a lack of historical knowledge among young researchers.

June 15, 2020

A new report on Holocaust education in Israel's universities and colleges points out a lack of academics who focus on core issues of the Holocaust; systematic ignoring of the Holocaust as it affected the Jews of the Netherlands, France and Belgium; and a lack of researchers and lecturers who focus on the Holocaust in the Balkans and in North Africa.

The report, authored by a special committee of the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, indicates a notable drop in the level and quality of Holocaust research in Israel; a lack of courses and studies in the field; and warns that twisted use is being made of Holocaust research.
