Poignant and well curated, Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center mourns millions of genocide victims and lends visitors insight into the experiences of European Jews before, during, and after World War II.

Walk the trails of the museum grounds to find additional memorials to the "righteous gentiles," non-Jews who risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbors.
