The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Museum is visited in great numbers by people from all over the world as well as from Israel. The Museum presents the tragic history of the Jewish Holocaust of the 20th Century. Because of the subject of the Museum it was felt that the design should not draw any attention to itself, and the landscaping of the open spaces was designed as a background to the experience of the exhibitions. The various open spaces have been designed to create places for contemplation and respite. The new landscaping blends into the natural surroundings of the site through the use of local forest vegetation and simple evergreens. Views of the Judean Hills were created in many points.
