Today, the names of some 4,800,000 of the six million victims of the Holocaust have been commemorated at Yad Vashem. A large part of the more than one million still-unknown names belong to Jews living in the Soviet Union during the Holocaust, and until the breakup of the USSR, no one in the region commemorated the victims or tried to ascertain their identities.
Sunday to Thursday: 09:00-17:00
Fridays and Holiday eves: 09:00-14:00
Yad Vashem is closed on Saturdays and all Jewish Holidays.
Entrance to the Holocaust History Museum is not permitted for children under the age of 10. Babies in strollers or carriers will not be permitted to enter.
