After a quick stop in the Cardo to refresh and shop a bit we were on to the serious business of visiting Yad V'shem; which is Israel's official memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, established in 1953. If you have not been to Yad V'Shem since 2006 it has been totally revamped. It is a moving tribute to the 6 Million who perished in the Holocaust including a tribute the 1 Million children who died. The use of modern technology including videos, music, and other techniques is at its best.
While the rest of the group was at Yad V'shem Max, who is too young for the museum, and I went the Biblical Zoo. We had a good time and found all of Max's favorite animals at the zoo.
