Consider seeing this place in two visits. I found it too emotional to cover at one time. Horrible how manknd can harm fellow human beings. Couldn't help thinks of a certain U.S. president.

A must see! If you go to Jerusalem, you have to spend at least a day in Yad Vashem. It is absolutely overwhelming, especially the kids memorial.

If you are in Jerusalem this is a must. Very sobering of course but beautifully done. We went closer to closing and it was a bit less crowded.

Trip into the dark years of humanity but very educating and sad as well. The entrance is free of charge.

The easiest and least expensive way is to take the light rail until the last stop at Har Herzl. From there it is either a short walk of about 5-7 minutes or alternatively there is a free shuttle to get to the entrance from... More
Is it safe for a Palestinian to visit the memorial, because it's deeper into Israel. Is there anything I should know before going. Thanks

300% safe as long as you behave respectfully and abide with the place's rules. All Israel is like this, actually. It doesn't matter where you come from, what is your skin's color, religion or whatever else. Respect others... More
