Yad Vashem - The World Holocaust Remembrance Center, Jerusalem

4.8
#1 of 260 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.

Isaiah 56.5 we came in to visit this museum and were overwhelmed with emotions. the main body, the pavilions and the park. we walked in thinking we were a normal museum and instead stayed there for five hours, and maybe it took even longer. absolutely don't miss the pavilion dedicated to children victims of the shoah. in the central body you can see the original SHINDLER LIST .
