Yad Vashem, the World Holocaust Remembrance Center, was created by an act of the Knesset (Israeli Parliament) in 1953. Located on the Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, it is dedicated to documentation, research, education and commemoration of the catastrophic events of the Holocaust. Its sprawling 45-acre campus is comprised of various museums, research and education centers, monuments and memorials. Each year, some one million people visit Yad Vashem, and millions more visit its comprehensive websites in eight languages. Yad Vashem endeavors to lead the documentation, research, education and commemoration of the Holocaust, and to bring the chronicles of this unique Jewish and human event to every person in Israel, to the Jewish people, and to every significant and relevant audience worldwide.
