The Exhibitions Pavilion displays a wide variety of historical, thematic and art exhibitions. This opens unique windows to the outer and inner worlds of Shoah victims and contributes unique perspectives to the ongoing attempt to understand the meaning of the Holocaust.
A major component of the new Museum Complex, the 700-sq. meter Pavilion enables Yad Vashem to mount major interdisciplinary exhibitions and display large-size artworks, sculptures and installations.
Speaking at the inauguration of the Pavilion, Chairman of the Yad Vashem Directorate Avner Shalev noted that Yad Vashem is currently grappling with the “central challenge of how to make remembrance of the Holocaust relevant to young people... In order to maintain our audience — which includes millions of young people — we must be dynamic. The Exhibitions Pavilion allows us to do that.”
