To mark International Children's Day, and to answer the high demand for material on the experience of Jewish children during the Shoah, Yad Vashem launched a new online exhibition in November 2019, entitled "Children in the Holocaust." The exhibition features children's toys, games, artworks, letters, diaries and albums, all carefully preserved in Yad Vashem's Collections, and which appear across the Yad Vashem website as part of other online presentations on a variety of Holocaust-related topics. In addition, the new exhibition brings testimonies from survivors who shared their childhood experiences from before, during and immediately after the Holocaust.

Yad Vashem is closed on Saturdays and all Jewish Holidays.
