Yitzhak Shamir passed away a decade ago, on June 30, 2012, at the age of 96. He served as prime minister for a total of seven years, but has been forgotten in the collective memory. No organization is engaged in honoring Shamir’s memory, nor has the Knesset passed legislation mandating any form of commemoration, as it did in the case of other leaders, among them David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin and Yitzhak Rabin. Similarly, the Israel State Archives, which has published 10 volumes of documents related to the lives of presidents and prime ministers, has not devoted a volume to Shamir.
