Holocaust education trips for Israeli students to Poland had been suspended last year but the trips have recently been restored.

In July, Poland and Israel vowed to improve relations, saying they would mutually restore ambassadors.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the restoration saying it symbolized a “positive step forward” in diplomatic relations with Poland.
