My Digital Diary...

...chronicling my travels in pictures, and the occasional travelogue.

Yom Hashoah

Yad Vashem, The Holocaust History Museum, Jerusalem, Israel.

Today is Yom Hashoah, i.e. Holocaust Remembrance Day and a public holiday in Israel.

The new Holocaust History Museum in Jerusalem, Israel, was opened in March 2005. We visited this on the last day of our stay in the Holy Land.

While photography was not permitted in the history museum, we could do so at the children's memorial, which commemorates the one and a half million children who were murdered in the Holocaust.

Isaiah 56:6 And to them will I give in my house and within my walls a memorial and a name (Yad Vashem) that shall not be cut off.
