“And to them I will give in my house and within my walls a memorial and a name (“yad vashem”) that shall not be cut off.”
Yad Vashem is so much more than a Holocaust Memorial. Situated on 45 acres on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, it is a world-class center for documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust.
Yad Vashem is a community of memory, housing the International School for Holocaust Studies, a first-class institute for Holocaust Research, a Publications Division, a renowned Library, and the world’s largest Archive of Holocaust materials.
Yad Vashem is entrusted with the mission of safe-guarding the memory of the Holocaust and imparting its meaning for future generations.
