700 young people under 45 from Israel and North America began their GA experience by spending the morning at Yad Vashem. They were divided into small groups and taken on brief private tours of special points of interest and commemoration at Yad Vashem. They then gathered in Warsaw Ghetto Square and listened to speakers and to the music of the Ramat Gan Municipality Children's Harmonica Orchestra in memory of Shmuel Gogol.
