Yad Vashem, Jerusalem
The Holocaust is a defining event in human history, which generated a credibility crisis of major proportions in our most basic assumptions about the nature of mankind, of society, of the modern state, and of our responsibility as individuals to take a stand against unjust suffering of innocent people everywhere. These universal questions, and many others, touch upon the very foundations of civilization and even now, over seventy years since the end of World War II, we have not yet come to terms with the implications of this event. The Holocaust has therefore become a compelling challenge for concerned individuals all over the world.
Yad Vashem, as the world’s leading institution for Holocaust education, commemoration and documentation, is the best place to help committed individuals to meet this challenge in an open, honest, and professional environment. Yad Vashem’s International School for Holocaust Studies together with the Christian Friends of Yad Vashem is offering Christian educators, media professionals, senior pastors and ministry leaders a unique proactive and educational experience in remembering the past and shaping the future. During the seminar in Israel the select group of about 30 participants will experience world-class lectures, moving Holocaust survivor testimonies and an introduction to Israel. The seminar will also include attending a very moving state ceremony during Israel’s National Holocaust Memorial Day at Yad Vashem in the presence of the President of the State of Israel, the Prime Minister and many other senior Israeli and foreign dignitaries.
Applicants are invited to send in their application form together with a photo of themselves.
