Yad Vashem information
The effects that the Holocaust wrought on the Jewish people still reverberate strongly in the Diaspora and, especially, Israel. It was a tragedy from which grew the modern State of Israel, and its legacy has defined the national psyche for more than half a century. In 1953 the Knesset set forth a plan to memorialise the six million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis, and honour those who tried to save them. The result was Yad Vashem , a vast, landscaped complex with a visitors centre, a museum and a dozen memorials scattered over 45 acres of the Mount of Remembrance.
