Yad Vashem, Jerusalem

Ein Kerem
Tel: 972 2 644 3400
view web site ›'s insider take:

After ten years and $100 million, Jerusalem's Yad Vashem holocaust memorial (created in 1953) was reborn in March 2005. Designed by Israeli–Canadian architect Moshe Safdie, the new Holocaust History Museum has architecture as compelling as the story told inside. Safdie's 45,000-square-foot design is more than 500 feet long and thrusts dramatically upward through the compound's Mount of Remembrance before ending in a pair of curved, fluted wings. Inside is the Hall of Names—a conical structure filled with some three million names of those who perished under the Nazis.
