In honor of the festival of Hanukkah, Yad Vashem presents a fascinating online exhibition of photos, artifacts and testimonies from the Yad Vashem Collections.

The miracle of Hanukkah and the Menorah itself symbolize Jewish resilience and continuity, reflected in the ways this holiday was observed throughout Europe before WWII, in the Holocaust years, and at displaced persons camps and children’s homes following the war.

These are the personal accounts of how the Jews of Europe celebrated the Festival of Lights before, during and after one of the darkest chapters in modern history.
