"The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial" Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Tip by Goner
Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, Jerusalem: 17 reviews and 30 photos
Yad Vashem is the holocaust museum and research center. It displays the Holocaust martyr's and Heroes.
My picture is of a statue a of a pediatrician who chose to die with Jewish orphans in the Holocaust. Dr. Janusz Korczak refused numerous opportunities to abandon the 200 children in his Warsaw orphanage. When the Nazis decided to deport those children to their deaths at Treblinka, Korczak chose to go with them, and also perished. Beside the sculpture stands a sign that reads: "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends (John 15:13).
To me this was one of the most important reminders of the Holocaust; though there is much evil in this world there is always something or someone to remind us there is good.
