Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, Jerusalem

4.8
#1 of 256 in Museums in Israel
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. The museum complex includes the main history wing ending in a dizzying hall of commemoration, a memorial to children who perished in the Holocaust, and a gallery of Holocaust-related art. 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.

  • Wow. This place was amazing for all the right and "wrong" reasons. The children's memorial was particularly moving and the exhibits and historical items were fascinating to say the least. Allow a full day
  • Very nice place to visit if you are in Jerusalem. Its free entry and you are presented with a vivid & grotesque account of the atrocities during the holocaust that eventually led to the Israel we know today...
