Yom HaShoah Online Tour

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

A journey exploring the changing ways in which the Holocaust has been memorialised through analysing three monuments of Nathan Rapoport.

Three years after the Holocaust, amidst the ruins of the Warsaw Ghetto, Nathan Rapoport sculpted a monument remembering those who lost their lives and memorialising the fighters of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Recommissioned by Yad Vashem, an almost identical structure is the famous backdrop for Israel’s national Yom HaShoah commemoration. What is less well-known is that Rapoport created a radically different Holocaust memorial, the Scrolls of Fire, in the Forest of the Martyrs in the Jerusalem Hills.

This architectural tour will compare and contrast these monuments, using them as a platform to explore how and why Israeli perceptions of victims, resistance and heroism shifted over time, and how these changes have shaped the nature of Yom HaShoah itself.
