I came out not heavy hearted but praying the holocaust never happens again. Very thought provoking. Very well done not too make it into a tear jerker but to make you think. It does!

The museum is shaped like an arrow shot through the hill. You enter and slowly descend to the lowest point of the building and of the holocaust and then you rise up until you exit into the light and the view of Israel. The exhibition shows life before the holocaust, photos of happy people enjoying life with their family and friends, it explains very clearly in Hebrew and in English what happened to the different Jewish communities in Europe. Much of it is hard to take, especially the video interviews with survivors. On the right before you leave id the Hall of Names, a circular room which holds the names of all the victims of the holocaust, in the centre is a hole hewn out of the rock which looks down into darkness. Very powerful.
Outside there are other memorials including the Avenue of the Righteous, trees planted in honour of non-Jews who have risked their lives to help Jews. Also there is the Children's Memorial, a dark room underground with a single candle flame lit, and reflected with mirrors 1.5 million times to represent the number of children murdered.
Not an easy visit but an essential one: you will come away in deep thought.

Yad Vashem is a crucial museum to see while visiting Israel. The stories conveyed, artifacts displayed and the limitless information is incredible. If you have the opportunity, go with a private guide. That takes the experience to a completely different level.

It's been over five years since we were there and the difference is amazing. The curators did a great job sequencing the events. The story line is clearer with no holds barred
