Virtual tour of Yad Vashem: the Museum of Holocaust History
Join BZD on International Holocaust Remembrance Day for a guided virtual tour of Yad Vashem: the Museum of Holocaust History. The museum will present an online and interactive tour in 360 technology accompanied by a guide that combines the sequence of historical events with the personal stories behind the testimonies, objects, works of art, and photographs displayed in the museum.
The Holocaust History Museum occupies over 4,200 square meters, mainly underground. Both multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, it presents the story of the Shoah from a unique Jewish perspective, emphasizing the experiences of the individual victims through original artifacts, survivor testimonies, and personal possessions.
Its 180 meters – long linear structure in the form of a spike cuts through the mountain with its uppermost edge – a skylight – protruding through the mountain ridge. During those terrible years, galleries portraying the complexity of the Jewish situation branch off this spike-like shaft, and the exit emerges dramatically out of the mountainside, affording a view of the valley below.
At the end of the museum’s historical narrative is the Hall of Names- a repository for the Pages of Testimony of millions of Holocaust victims, a memorial to those who perished.
