The video testamonials from survivors could not be ignored but trying to navigate throught the masses of people made it very difficult to view.

What a wonderful museum. You leave there at a load for words. You wonder how this went on under the eyes of the world. Definitely worth going.

If you are in Jeruzalem, you can't miss Yad Vashem. Extremely impressive. Do not only go to the museum, go also to the other memorial sites at the terrain.
