As the Jewish people’s living memorial to the Holocaust, Yad Vashem safeguards the memory of the past and imparts its meaning for future generations. Established in 1953, as the world center for documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust, Yad Vashem is now a dynamic and vital place of inter -enerational and international encounter.
Yad Vashem hosts many exhibits – from the history of Europe before the holocaust, through the concentration camps, ghettos and testimonies.
