 YAD VASHEM MUSEUM AND THE 8-METER HIGH WALL A FEW KILOMETERS AWAY: ISRAEL AND MEMORIES 2007-2008
Unlike other holocaust museums and memorials, I have visited in Germany, Poland, former Yugoslavia, and the United States, the Yad Vashem Museum in Israel takes an unashamedly narrow approach on (1) the victimization of Jews and (2) the centrality of the Holocaust in the process of the state building of Israel in the 20th Century.
By intentionally connecting the memory of the building of Israel to the Holocaust, Yad Vashem Museum in Israel has created a key means of interpreting modern Israel and the reason for its being.
Sadly, Yad Vashem Museum has not taken time nor opportunity to point out how the cement barriers of the modern Israeli system and its walls are mirrored so clearly in the unadorned concrete of its own main triangular structure.

 [No title]
According to the Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance (Yad Vashem) Law, 5713/1953, its cask is to commemorate the Holocaust, but also "to bring home its lesson to the people." But then, it all depends on just what "the lesson" is taken to be.
The Yad Vashem management decided to forbid him to sit on the institution's grounds, and after seven days he gave up.
If "the lesson of the Holocaust" that Yad Vashem is supposed to "bring home to the people" amounts to nothing more than Jewish statism, that does explain the complete silence it has maintained in the face of genocide in the Balkans.

 In Clear Sight of Yad Vashem -- RighteousJews.org
Jews of conscience were of course pleased to see Jewish suffering again at the centre of the discourse but also happy to extend their narrative of suffering to include Palestinians.
First, by all accounts, and according to any version of the events, what was done to the Jews of Europe took place a long distance from Yad Vashem, while what was done to the Palestinian people took place right there at the village of Deir Yassin and right there throughout the whole of Palestine.
And one final difference: If the living evidence for the veracity of the Holocaust narrative is a safe, secure and empowered Jewish people, at home wherever they may be, the living evidence for the veracity of Deir Yassin and the Nakba is a Palestinian people dispossessed and exiled and longing to go home.
