Yad Vashem, Jerusalem Reviews

  • A very important visit for anyone and everyone. Before this visit, (July 2018) I hadn't been to Yad Vashem since 1986. It has changed tremendously since then. The displays are extremely well done and very well organized. They have used artifacts in an engaging manner, and the actual period audio and visual records, both photos and videos, are presented in a powerful format. The timeline shown by the displays makes an incomprehensible event a bit easier to fathom. Yad Vashem has made great efforts in research, in order to come up with names of victims in famous pictures, greatly personalizing this otherwise mass tragedy. I was very moved by these details. I found the later displays of the post war period as it relates to Zionism, a bit jingoistic but I understand from where it comes. Overall this is a must see for anyone who cares about humanity.

  • A very solemn place full of a beautiful wealth of information. We were lucky enough to have tour guides that explained the memorial to my group. I recommend wear respect clothes but I saw different clothing styles through out. Free to enter, they ask for donations at the end.

  • Words are not able to capture the importance of this place to humanity. Go. Visit. Spend time. Reflect. Learn. Take it all in. This will take a few hours at least to do properly. You will be moved. You will be angry and upset and cry and feel depressed. You should do this in order to feel those things fully.

  • The evidences are incredibly detailed and touching, and so well displayed. I walked through the final room of shelves with each person's container to cry over them and pray for any living family. You have to take the time to go through to the end of this wonderful memorial. Thank you to all who donated, gathered, cataloged and displayed this precious site.

  • Very well done, moving and enlightening. Architecture is magnificent and adds to the emotions. Take the time to see as much as possible, aside from the main museum. Children’s memorial particular moving. Taxis outside try to overcharge you but be firm. Ask for the meter.
