The story of Hanukka symbolizes the resilience and continuity of Judaism throughout its troubled history. This is reflected in the way this holiday was observed throughout Europe by all types of Jews before, during and in the aftermath of the Holocaust.In advance of the Hanukka holiday, Yad Vashem created an online exhibition of photos, artifacts and testimonies from its collections connected to this special festival. Each item carries with it the personal story of the people behind it, making them “silent witnesses” of the tragedy that befell the Jewish people during the Holocaust.
