This year's Yad Vashem's calendar marks 70 years since the establishment of the State of Israel, and focuses on the longing and desire of the Jewish people to return to Zion, before, during, and immediately following the Holocaust. A new temporary exhibition dedicated to this topic will open at Yad Vashem in April 2018.

The ancient Zionist dream of returning to the Land of Israel was kept alive throughout thousands of years of Jewish life in the Diaspora. On the eve of World War II, all across Europe, North Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas, Zionist youth movements thrived, including "Kibbutzim" and "Hachsharot," preparing and training Jews with the life skills needed to reacclimatize themselves to life in the faraway Land of Israel. With the outbreak of WWII and the devastating persecution of Jews in areas under Nazi control and influence, their Zionist dreams of a bright future were abruptly put on hold. Nevertheless, even under the direst of conditions, a large portion of the persecuted Jews continued to cling to their dreams of rebuilding their ancient homeland.
