The last time I visited the Yad Vashem memorial was in 2003, when I was here for my sister’s wedding. Since that time, they had built a completely new complex, which opened in the spring of 2005. So this would be a new experience for me. The material was more or less the same, though it still took us about 2.5 hours to go through it – and we could have easily stayed longer. It’s a must-see if you ever make it to Israel, but of course, it’s a bit emotionally draining.
