It's difficult to express what Yad Vashem is. All at the same time memorial, museum, a place to reflect and more. We arrived way too late and should have started first thing in the morning.

This holocaust museum was very tastefully done. The numerous photographs, videos, interviews, artifacts are a stark reminder of man's inhumanity to man. The children's memorial building was profound.
