A moving, exhaustive look at Holocaust. Which was getting to me, when there was a big section on the rescuers and relief workers, undercover, who took great riskes to save people, especially children. The museum ended with wide variety of lovely areas for reflection.

This is moving but Washington DC is more emotional, but a must to see. Washington is a holocaust museum and a memorial, while Yad Vashem is a memorial with a museum.

We visited Yad Vashem on our 2nd visit to Jerusalem, having failed to get to it on our first. As other reviewers have rightly pointed out, this is an amazing museum but you do need a good few hours in order to do it justice....More

I was expecting something more about the Holocaust, you know. But it is not. It moves you sincerly, it is plenty of intelligent, well selected and non-manipulative information.

The museum plots the plight of the Jews in Europe from the early 1930s, through the rise of Hitler and ultimately to the liberation of the concentration camps. Clearly, much of the information shown can be very upsetting. Visitors move through the museum in a...More
