Even for a profound connoisseur of the history of National Socialism, a visit to Yad Vashem is a depressing experience. I have been to some of the original locations of history, not only in smaller, unknown places, not only in Schindler's factory in Krakow, but...More

This museum is huge and very emotional. Plan on a long visit to be able to stop and listen to the testimonies as well as items that depict the Holocaust. I would have enjoyed seeing it by coming back for the next two days. What...More

Did you know the place was build low on purpose? This is so you’d have to walk down to reach it. Not up, or flat, but down. As to say: we had to go this low to reach the atrocious things that were done in...More

This Memorial is different from the previous one that had a more stark feel to it. Understanding that this event is stark by nature, this memorial guides you through the run up and prevailing sentiments of Nazi Germany. A must see when in Israel

Spent over 4 hours here and it could have been longer. We had relatives that came over from Lithuania in the early 1900s. After seeing what happened in WW2 it shocks your senses and your humanity.

Even if you think you know the history, I recommend that you include Yad Vashem in the list of "musts sees" in Jerusalem. It starts off with the events that led to the holocaust and follows a time line, much like the US Memorial Holocaust...More

Somber and important memorial to those who perished during the Holocaust. We attended on a busy day, and used the audio guides for the tour. In hindsight, I would have rather gone with the tour guide. The size of the crowd and logistical reasons made...More

The design and story in the building itself is something to behold! Nothing is more moving than these stories and I was deeply impacted by the glass floor covering a pit of shoes collected from the death camps. Don't miss the children's memorial and the...More

Worth every minute there and we actually spent more time there than expected. A sobering and important stop on any journey to Israel.
