A visit to Yad Vashem can never be long enough. It is hard to believe that humans could be so cruel and abusive to other humans. There are countless photos and stories of people who suffered at the hands of the Germans, the Poles, the French,etc. all because they were Jews. Viewing the exhibits with all the atrocities tore at... More

I have been to many Holocaust memorials and I would have to say, this is by far the "best," if I can use that word. The vast size and ability to tell the most important story of our not so distant past is just something you can ignore. A must visit.

This Holocaust memorial since it was revamped several years ago is very impressive. The way it has been designed to show how the Holocaust happened and what its affect was on its victims really makes one think about how low the Nazis sank, The overall design of the exhibition leading you to end up looking out into the light with...

Very moving. Could have spent half a day there. If you weren't moved by what you saw I feel sorry for you. Children's memorial shouldn't be missed.

A needed experience in order to better understand the background, history and the emotional set up of the state of Israel.Beyond the fact that Yad Vashem has amazing exhibits, and beyond the fact that it is very well organized and set up, one feels the vibration as you walk about. If you don't know the background and history I would... More
