Please make a visit to Yad Vashem part of your visit to Jerusalem. It is a beautiful memorial and representative/interactive documentation of the Holocaust.

Yad Vashem is a truly moving experience, showing the humanity that struggled to rise above the terror and horrors, humanity and heroism. Spend few hours. Hear couple of testimonies. Come again when possible. The visit will leave you speechless.

We couldn't see enough or understand it all since there were so many people to navigate through. We had to deal with many Birthright groups and private tour groups. We did the best that we could and there thankful that we had been there before.

I am from Washington, DC and have been to the Holocaust museum there, which does not come close to comparing to this. It is enormous and traces the entire development, pre-1933 to post-1945. Amazing history of all aspects, with photo and video.

Moving! A must for anyone visiting Israel. The exhibits flows well to follow the history of the holocaust. Very moving to see Israeli soldier units on field trips to the museum. The understanding of not only why they must protect their country for themselves and...More

You don't really need a guide. Each display is very informative. Many have video presentations. The museum is set up so you can't walk through; it makes you zig and zag. There's so much there you can't see it all. It'll tear... More
