A compilation of videos of survivors, documents/paraphernalia, clothing of victims of the holocaust. Informative, but sad and upsetting a the same time. The museum is well put together and afterwards they have a nice cafe with great food.

300% safe as long as you behave respectfully and abide with the place's rules. All Israel is like this, actually. It doesn't matter where you come from, what is your skin's color, religion or whatever else. Respect others... More
