NAZARETH, Israel -- The photographs in a new museum here are among the best-known icons of the Holocaust: Germans executing a group of naked Jewish women; a little boy with a yellow Star of David on his jacket raising his hands in fright; a grandmother and four children shuffling dejectedly along a barbed-wire corridor.
Such images were everywhere in Israel yesterday as movies, documentaries, and newspapers marked Yom Hashoah, the annual day of remembrance for the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis and their allies.
The museum, opened in mid-March by a Muslim lawyer, is believed to be the first to present the story of the Holocaust in Arabic.

JERUSALEM —; The Museum of the Jewish Diaspora in Tel Aviv, once famed for its cutting-edge technology and innovative exhibitions, is on the verge of total economic collapse and will be forced to close unless additional funding can be found to keep it alive.
Six years ago the average monthly wage of the museum's five senior officials was $8,097, as compared to $7,254 for officials at the Israel Museum and $6,150 for administrators at the Tel Aviv Museum.
What made the Diaspora Museum different than other museums was that its designers chose not to display collections of art, treasures or objects preserved from the past, and there are hardly any historic artifacts displayed on the museum's three floors.

The flags of Israel and the Vatican were placed side by side in the background and the Papal Nuncio (Vatican ambassador), Archbishop Pietro Sambi, called the presentation just one example of "cultural collaboration between Israel and the Vatican that is going on in many fields."
Although the artifacts in the Israel Museum exhibition are the first manuscripts lent to Israel by the Vatican, they are not the first loan of any kind.
The Vatican made its first loan to the Israel Museum two years ago when, for the holiday of Succot (harvest holiday in Autumn) it temporarily gave the institution a 1,800-year-old Roman relic depicting a Succah (outdoor booth lived in during the Jewish festival of Tabernacles) in the courtyard of the Temple.

For a museum such as the Israel Museum, this is a formidable challenge, not only for the sheer quantity of its holdings but also in that the digital archive is fully searchable in both Hebrew and English.
While it is fairly simple to translate educational print and video material into the www environment, the real challenge for museum educators lies in their ability to create a link between the school and the museum, between student and student, from school to school and from the home to the school.
The list is too long to be included here, but for visitors to the Israel Museum who are unable to see the material collections with their own eyes, we are proud of our virtual objects, on-line educational activities and electronic surrogates, which serve to extend the museums’ holdings beyond the walls of the museum experience.

Apparently unremarkable at first sight, a small ornamental ivory object in the form of a pomegranate (right) and bearing a short inscription in palaeo-Hebrew script, must nonetheless be recognised as one of the most important and controversial acquisitions yet made by the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
Efforts began immediately in Israel to raise the necessary funds to secure the object for the museum.
Now on display in the Israel Museum, the ivory pomegranate has since been displayed at the Smithsonian Institution in November 1993 in an exhibition sponsored by the Biblical Archaeology Society.

Italian art collector Arturo Schwartz, the son of non-observant Jewish parents, was a strong backer of Israel and showed his support by donating his immense collection of Dada and Surrealist art to the Israel Museum in Jerusalem in 1998.
Schwartz was born in Alexandria, Egypt, in 1924 and early on was a supporter of the Zionist movement.
The actual transfer of the collection to the Museum in Jerusalem was delayed by years of haggling with the Italian government over an export license for the collection before the roadblocks were finally cleared in 1997.

A centuries-old statue of Venus, headless but vibrant with color and detail, went on display Wednesday at the Israel Museum, a decade after it was discovered in northern Israel.
The statue was discovered in 1993 in an ancient bathhouse during an archaeological dig in Beit Shean, a small city near the Jordan River and the Sea of Galilee.
With locks of hair curling around the collarbone of the headless sculpture, the figure is modeled after a stance called the "timid Venus," particularly striking because the sculpture's missing hands reveal parts of her female body that the artist intended to partially hide.
