Inspirational tours that will recount the history of the blueprints for Yad Vashem, whose design began prior to the establishment of the State of Israel (1942) at the initiative of Mordechai Shenhavi – and before the magnitude of the tragedy that befell the Jewish people and the scope of the horrors of the death camps were even fully known. The tours will focus on the period that preceded the construction of the first buildings in the 1950s. The prolonged architectural planning process that took place at the site is indicative of the changes in the awareness of the Holocaust and in the representation of Israeli nationalism that characterized those years. The 75-minute tours will be led by Neta Shani, a doctoral student at the University of Haifa, who researched the history of Yad Vashem blueprints as part of her thesis.
