Know More about this tour
As your guide leads the way, you will enter the Holocaust History Museum, designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie. The prism-like triangular structure penetrates the mountain from one side to the other, with both ends dramatically cantilevering into the open air. Your guide will then take you through nine different galleries each one depicting a different "chapter" in the annals of Holocaust history. You will encounter authentic posters, propaganda, and antisemitic board games that provide context for the developments in Nazi Germany during the 1930s.
On "Leszno Street," you will walk upon the cobblestones of a reconstructed street from the Warsaw Ghetto. Other highlights include the original Auschwitz Album, a photo album which includes the only surviving visual evidence of the process leading to the mass murder at Auschwitz-Birkenau and a copy of "Schindler's List". At the close of the museum is the monumental Hall of Names. As you enter the circular hall, you can look up at the domed ceiling on which the pictures of 600 men, women, and children are displayed. As you look down, you'll see the pictures reflected below in a pool of water dug deep into the bedrock.
At the close of the tour, you are welcome to explore the rest of the extensive Yad Vashem grounds and campus at your own pace.
