1. Holocaust Survivors Come Home 1945-1962. Survivors of the Holocaust who moved to Israel faced three essential challenges: their immediate health and psychological aspects, finding a place to live and then settling down. After the Second World War it became clear to many that they could not return to their homes and therefore Eretz Israel, not yet a state, became an alternative despite British obstacles. Even after Israel's Declaration of Independence, the Israeli population was reluctant to discuss the Shoah and this only changed with the 1961 Eichmann Trial, when open discussion of their trauma became more acceptable.
