World-renowned Holocaust historian Professor Israel Gutman, a survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and the Auschwitz concentration camp and one of the founders of the Yad Vashem International Institute for Holocaust Research, passed away in Jerusalem on Monday night. He was 90.

Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev said, “My mentor and friend, Professor Israel Gutman, made a deep impression on historiography in Israel and around the world, and made a significant and unique contribution to the propagation of historical awareness of the Holocaust and its meanings among the wider public forum in Israel, especially among the youth.”
