Leni Yahil

Leni Yahil (1912–2007) was an Israeli scholar and pioneer of Holocaust research in the decades following World War II. Her work uniquely emphasized the importance of Jewish primary sources and Jewish perspectives on the Holocaust, highlighting the role of Jewish resistance to Nazism and challenging assumptions about Jewish passivity.
