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."

Designed by the architect Moshe Safdie, the Yad Vashem Holocaust History Museum is a prism-like triangular structure that penetrates the mountain from one side to the other. Moshe Safdie: “I wanted just the basic structure – concrete walls and floors, and glass to let the light in from above”.
