Yad Vashem has expanded its exhibits since I last visited. There are many more videos, more exhibit rooms, more technologically advanced exhibits. Very moving, as always.

Of course it was harrowing, but we learned a lot as well. A truly memorable experience we will never forget.

We spent 4 hours at this museum and could have stayed longer. The museum is well laid out, very educational, emotional and a must see.
