Yad Vashem was established by the Israeli Parliament in 1953 as a memorial for almost six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust. Among several divisions of Yad Vashem are the historical museum presenting an overview of the period, and the art museum, which displays works depicting life in the Jewish ghettos and concentration camps. The Avenue of the Righteous commemorates those who helped to rescue Jews. Visitors whose relatives perished are encouraged to add information to the computerized database. There is also an academic research institute, and speakers, conferences and seminars about the Holocaust and related issues. Call ahead for more details.
