The Holocaust Memorial ‘Yad Vashem’

Monday, September 21, 2009

During a recent visit to Israel and Palestine Meg went to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Jerusalem. Yad Vashem means “memorial of names” and seeks to tell the story of the Holocaust through the individual stories of victims, their families, people who protected and saved Jews and those who were involved in killing people. The museum collects the names of those who died and records them of the 6 million who were murdered only about half are known.

 

Meg said:

 

“This is an incredibly powerful record of the terrible crimes that were committed. By putting names to those involved, and telling the stories of their lives, we see that these were ordinary people just like us. It’s very distressing but crucial that we know what happened.”
