“Very moving and inspirational, should be a lesson to us all, may it never happen again,” one visitor to TripAdvisor wrote. “We should never forget what this nation went through.”

“The displays are moving and informative, they will stay with you long after you leave this place,” another visitor wrote. “You may find yourself emotionally spent after you finish, but that is to be expected. But, you will take away a resolve that this cannot be permitted to happen to any race, anywhere, ever again.”

Yad Vashem was also a Traveler’s Choice 2013 winner on TripAdvisor. The award is only granted to institutions that consistently receive outstanding reviews and have an average rating of more than four out of five stars.
