Holocaust Museum Jerusalem Jun 26, 2011
Probably one of the most powerful places I have ever visited. The Holocaust happened, its in our past, and many ignorant people still refuse to acknowledge it. No matter which faith you believe in, you should really visit this place. I put the dollar sign because everyone should donate to keep it standing.

I went to Israel on a birthright trip, and I have to say the day we went to Yad Vashem, was the most moving for me. It helps you keep in perspective how many Jews and others were killed in Hitlers regime, and also how precious life is. It gives you a different outlook on your current state of life. It's one of those moments in your life, where you are so thankful for everything you have, every opportunity you are given, and for at least that day, you don't take anything for granted

A Must-See in Jerusalem: Yad Vashem Oct 17, 2009
Yad Vashem is the Holocaust Remembrance Museum, located in Jerusalem, Israel. It is hands down the most powerful and brilliantly designed museum I've been fortunate enough to visit. Be ready to feel a heaviness come down on you as you enter the museum, and also be ready to spend a day (minimum) there. Try not to rush through the exhibits, the museum itself is incredibly dense with videos, pictures, Third Reich uniforms and flags, etc. The library and archives are breath taking in depth and intensity. There is also a Hall of Names at the end of the museum in which you can search for family members in the Yad Vashem database. Overall, an amazing experience.

Great review! I was extremely moved visiting the Auschwitz death camp; we must never forget the lessons of the Holocaust.
