Flashback: Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum / Safdie Architects

Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum Location; Jerusalem, Israel — — — — — — — — — — I've been here. Its a very solemnizing place. It really makes you understand EXACTLY what they went through... And the shoes... Oh gosh, the shoes...

Holocast Museum . Jerusalem - This was probably the most heart wrenching thing I saw in Israel, representing 1.5 million Jewish children--- murdered. CEW.

Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum at night. Moshe Safdie, the architect: "I have always wondered if architecture is capable of evoking the same emotions that we experience listening to music. At Yad Vashem I'm constantly aware of how intensely personal the feelings provoked are, and how individual and particular. It is at these moments that I feel architecture can, however rarely, move us as deeply as music can."
