Echoes and Reflections

Lesson 8

Survivors and Liberators


In this lesson, you learn about liberators of the extermination camps and about the political, social, legal and emotional status of the Jewish survivors in Europe following the Holocaust. You also learn about Displaced Persons' (DP) Camps.

For more information about the DP Camps, click here.

In this lesson, you also learn about the complex dilemmas Jewish survivors faced in the shadow of the Holocaust. Most Holocaust survivors made the decision to leave Europe, and rebuild their lives on different continents. The majority of them immigrated to Israel (then Palestine, ruled by the British until 1947) to establish a Jewish national homeland. For more information on the State of Israel, click here.
