This pedagogical and sociological analysis of Shoah education in Israeli state schools is based on an empirical survey conducted from 2007-2009 among junior high school and high school students, teachers and principals in general and religious schools, and experts in the field.

Editorial Reviews

"A visit at Auschwitz shall not be understood solely in the categories of remembrance and education. This is a contemporary rite of passage. This is the time when a man has to ask oneself a difficult question on their own responsibility for the shape of our world. The book constitutes the most complete analysis of the process of introducing and the outcomes of education programs about the Shoah."
