r. Nili Keren is internationally recognized for her important work in Holocaust Education as well as research on the shaping of memory of the Holocaust in European countries. As a student of the esteemed Israeli historians, Yehuda Bauer and Israel Gutman, her doctoral dissertation on “The Developments in Holocaust Education in Israel, 1948-1980” (1986) was path breaking. She taught for many years at the Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel-Aviv, Israel, where she founded and directed the Holocaust Education Center. Her many books and articles (many of which have been translated into English, Polish, German, and Czech) include Shoa – A Journey to Memory (1998) and Shreds of Childhood: Educating Children and Youth in Theresienstadt and in Auschwitz-Birkenau (1993).
