‘Moreshet’ – the Mordechai Anielevich Memorial Holocaust Study and Research Center was founded in 1961 and among the various goals, the founders decided to establish a twice a year periodical that will publish different researches and testimonies about the holocaust. The first issue of ‘Moreshet Journal’ was published in November 1963, two years after ‘Moreshet’ foundation as a holocaust preservation, research and education center. ‘Moreshet Journal’ is the first periodical of its kind that is published since 1963 to this day.

Among ‘Moreshet Journal’ founders are professor Israel Gutman (1923-2013), the poet and partisan Abba Kovner (1918-1987), Dr. Shalom Cholavsky (1914-2011) and professor Yehuda Bauer.
