Room 8

This space differs from the rest of the museum. Until this point, visitors walked through two parallel stories that were presented in two separate spaces: The rooms displayed and presented the story of Israel. In contrast, the biography of Yitzhak Rabin was displayed in the corridor.

Now the two stories merge, the personal and the general – they are bound to and influence each other.

In this portion of the museum, Rabin is presented as a leader striving to generate a historic turn in relations between Israel, the Palestinians, and the Arab nations and consequently altering national priorities. Opposite this is a presentation showing Israeli society and the change that occurred through his leadership. In this framework, a description is given to the reactions to Rabin’s policies that, although they began as a legitimate protest, turned into wild and unbridled incitement.
