“Hard to say you enjoyed it!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Really tells you what happened and why. The footage is informative and somehow unbelievable at the same time. Survivors stories could keep you there a couple of hours by itself. In some ways it also help to understand why the jewish people need Israel so much.

“A Real Eye Opener. Life Changing.”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I can't even explain how this touched me. I really was under the impression that I knew all there was to know about the holocaust but I was wrong. There were so many things that made this excursion special. It was very informative with a guided tour and a guest speaker. The display with the different shoes makes you realize how REAL this was. The tour guide told stories that brought tears to your eyes. I would suggest this to anyone in the area.

“The Ugliness of Humanity”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I was unfortunate enough to be working across the street from the world trade centre and saw the second plane go in over my head. I witnessed other ghastly things that day i wont go into here. The Holocaust museum was like a hundred thousand other witnesses ( with their cameras and pens and paintbrushes) to another horrifying chapter in our collective human history. Fortunately, along with the terror and the hate there were small histories of a tiny minority of the "righteous"- schindler and his ilk, which gives us a little hope. The setting on the hillside and the architecture iis spectacular and the layout lends itself to a kind of dazed, timeless amble -eventually blinking back into the sunlight . Unfortunately you emerge and nearby is the wall built by the israelis to fence the palestinians in, and the gloom sets in again.

“The Most Incredible Museum I've Ever Seen”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

This is what it means to be human...experience this museum, for hours. Walk the grounds, find the hidden artistic jewels, inhale the Jerusalem air, pray, reflect, walk around some more, discover the acres of monuments and tributes. Yad VaShem is Israel's gift to the world.
