Yad Vashem is a remarkable place recounting life before, during, and after WWII. This is a must stop on any trip to Israel for people of all faiths. It is heartbreaking to think that these atrocities took place in the not to distant past.

This is a not to miss destination! The museum is set chronological order from rise of nazi party/Hitler to the end of the war. There is lots of information. Two hours was not enough. Go early to beat the crowds.

A thorough treatment of the tragedy of WORLD War II. Very graphic. Sad. Visit the garden of the "Righteous Gentiles" where the names of non-Jews who helped Jews are inscribed.

I've been to many holocaust places in the world and this was an excellent addition. The history was shared in a real way which made you feel the pain endured by Jews around the world during WWII. I liked that this museum told more of the story about jews in other countries too.

Walked through the Yad Vashem today. I enjoyed the unique construction of the building as when you enter you go down and at the end you rise per sei from the worst.. take your time here! It is free. I went with a tour group and would have like to stay longer to read more of the exhibits. What caught my eye was a particular picture of a murdered victim which I had seen her picture in Poland as well... go see this!
