Visited the photography exhibit featuring pictures and films taken during the holocaust by nazi, Jewish and the soldiers that liberated the concentration camps. Very powerful. Very interesting to see how the same reality was perceived and captured differently on film.

I visited Yad Vashem, It is history, suffering, pain. The effort behind organizing something like this is much appreciated. It is a lesson for all. Let it not happen again.

I had little time but I feel this was a very well thought out memorial to the holocaust victims. Take the light rail to get here and then walk 10 mins from Mount Herzl station.

A comprehensive tour of the Jewish people's living memorial to the Holocaust. Yad Vashem safeguards the memory of the past and imparts its meaning for future generation.

Its a solemn place that leaves you with a hole in your sole as what human beings can do to each other. Immense amount of effort to gather and present this to everyone now and the future visitors. Not to be forgotten

This is definitely a required stop for any trip to Jerusalem. The story that is told as you wend your way through the maze that is the timeline of the Holocaust is very well done. You can't absorb all of it in a single visit,...More
