About the Art Museum

The Museum of Holocaust Art, inaugurated in 2005, is located in Yad Vashem's Square of Hope. The Museum's rotating permanent exhibition displays some 120 works of art. Most of these works were created during the Holocaust itself, or before the war by artists later murdered during the Shoah.

The new Holocaust Art Museum exhibits the world's largest collection of art created in ghettos, camps, hideouts, and other places where artistic endeavor was nearly impossible. These works reflect the very spirit of the victims and survivors. The Holocaust Art Museum also contains the world's first computerized archive and information center regarding Shoah art and artists.
