Insights and Perspectives-Video Lecture Series 2020-21

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Yad Vashem’s professionals have been given the opportunity to engage new and veteran audiences with meaningful content in the comfort of their own homes.

Yad Vashem’s educators, researchers, curators and staff have developed a series of lectures held on the Zoom platform in order to better connect with our friends and partners around the world, even in times when we are unable to meet face-to-face.

To that end, we are pleased to offer you the opportunity to view past lectures in the videos below. If you would like to receive invitations to future live lectures, please send your request to international.relations@yadvashem.org.il

Lecture sponsorship is available. For more information and to sponsor an online lecture, contact international.relations@yadvashem.org.il
