This week, bestselling authors Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss visited the Holocaust History Museum at Yad Vashem. The couple were visibly moved during an emotional visit of some three hours. Their guided tour concluded with a visit to the Yad Vashem Archives where they saw several documents regarding members of Krauss' family. Foer and Krauss are in Israel to particpate in the Jerusalem Cultural Fellowship at Mishkenot Sha’ananim.
