Yad Vashem is a modern and beautifully presented museum and memorial to holocaust victims. It tells the horrible story in a clear, moderate way without being sensationalist but also without leaving out any of the awfulness of what went on. How can people do these things to each other?

As a tour guide, I feel that the depth and breadth of the historic information in Yad Vashem, is matched by the beauty of its structure, and the art it contains. There is so much to be gained at this museum, it defies explanation.

The Rembrence Center is excellent learning experience. The audio headsets are well worth renting. The situation is beautiful and well thought out. The memorial to the children is sobering and very emotional. They read out the names of the children and their ages. Well done and good lesson in history. History that should be repeated. The centre is not recommended... More

One of the best museum in remembrance of the Holocaust where 6 millions was executed at the behest of Hitler and the nazi party. It contains both still and interactive booths showing the atrocities committed against the Jews. It took us an estimated 3 to 4 hours just to finish the tour. No camera or phone are allowed.

My husband and I lived in Berlin Germany for the first three years we were married. The Berlin Wall was still in place. When family members visited, we took them to the wall and climbed up the observation steps to look over into East Berlin recalling the frightening night when the wall went up overnight, dividing families for decades. We... More
