Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial is inaugurating a new research center this week on the aftermath of the Holocaust, focusing on survivors’ post-war experiences in an attempt to better preserve the memory of the Shoah.

The establishment of the Diana Zborowski Center for the Study of the Aftermath of the Shoah, which will operate under the auspices of the International Institute for Holocaust Research at Yad Vashem, comes amid widespread Holocaust revisionism as the number of survivors continues to dwindle.

Dr. Ze’ev Mankowitz, the center’s director, noted that it was being launched at a time when contemporary Holocaust educators from around the world were trying to grapple with how to preserve the memory of the Holocaust today.
