Most heartbroken but stunning lay out to one of the saddest times in history! World class style and architect. Those shoes of the real Jewish under the glass floor was the saddest!

Yad Vashem is a must see when coming to Jerusalem. To understand Israel, and the world at large, learning of this recent history while survivors are still amongst us is essential for anyone who wants to know reality and truth. The documentation is incredible.

We really loved the architecture of the building, was stunning and up on a hill there were great views of the city. Exhibits were moving and such a key part of the history of Israel. Free. Easy access via tram.

Massively powerful experience. The museum really seems to be a complete education as to what happened before/during/after the holocaust. From old news footage and photos you’ve seen, to a one-of-a-kind photo album kept by an SS soldier. Powerful, gut-wrenching video testimonies from survivors are all...More
