As the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust, Yad Vashem protects the memory of the past and teaches its meaning for future generations. Established in 1953, as the world center for documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is today a dynamic place of intergenerational and international encounter.
I have personally visited Yad Vashem and I will never be the same. I learned about the Holocaust at school, but nothing prepared me for what I saw there. The amazing artifacts will take your breath away. The tour guides will tell you things that you never heard of and show incredible videos. I highly recommend it on your next trip to Israel.
