This week was an emotional whirlwind. We began our Siyur day at Yad Vashem, my personal favorite Holocaust museum. For me, Yad Vashem stands out because of its incredible attention to detail and its ability to tell as many individual stories as possible. While I have been to Yad Vashem before each time that I go I learn something new. This time around I had the opportunity to go into the learning center where we were able to look at 13 difficult questions and potential answers.
Another place that we visited on our Siyur day was Mount Hertzel. Mount Hertzel is a very special place that I believe all tourists should go to. It has amazing views, a large soldier presents and acts as the final resting place of solider in uniform who were killed and high ranking political figures. This time around we went to two very unique places on Mt Hertzel. We visited the memorial of the victims of terror and the memorial to the victims of the mass migration from Ethiopia. This was the first time that I had been to either and they both left a lasting impact on me. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to visit both memorials while I was there.
