Strong connections between the Shoah and contemporary times, as well as the impact of the memory of the Holocaust on the national awareness and identity of Israelis, especially the young generation, can be seen in how the theme of the Holocaust is rendered in the school curricula, textbooks and speeches of politicians delivered at commemorative ceremonies, during study visits to Poland and the Marches of the Living. What is also worth noting are the pedagogical methods employed and the experience of Israeli places of memory, connected with survivors of the Holocaust, including museums created by those survivors who emigrated from Europe, scientific and research institutes, cemeteries of soldiers who fought in the war of independence and in the Israel-Arab wars, as well as places of special importance for Israel's statehood.
