Coffee and cake and books at Yad Vashem

.

Today I had to meet a friend who works at Yad Vashem, our Holocaust memorial.
Here is the Visitor's Center where we had coffee and cake (one floor below).

Right behind the impressive building is an impressive gift shop; well, actually it is called The Book and Resource Center.
It  is managed by Steimatzky Group Ltd.
The center provides a wide range of current reference books, multi-media, memoirs and Holocaust literature for visitor purchase and fills book orders and visitor requests related to the Holocaust and WWII in various languages.
You can see samples of what's available at the Yad Vashem Online Store website.

Wish I had taken a photo of the book store for blog-friend Petrea Burchard in Pasadena because she just now informed us via Facebook  of a marvelous new ad campaign by this same  Israeli book chain,  Steimatzky's.
Follow the link, you will love the photos about the magic of reading!

Oh yay! I hope people will check it out, it's such a fun campaign, very innovative. A hint: I'd like to wake up with King Arthur, Lancelot & Guinevere.

Can I come along? :-)

Ciel, I wish!

That sounds actually quite intriguing and I would enjoy the going there as well... if only it was possible. Stay well, my friend.

It looks great, but I don't remember this building. Is it a recent addition or my memory is failing me again?

Dina said...

VP, I think it is fairly new. Through the Visitor Center you can pick up audio guided tour phones and walk toward the new museum. It is also the place where you must deposit your camera. :(

Wonderful architecture, Dina!

I like the strength and simplicity of the building. If you get back to Illinois, you'll find that they have built a large gorgeous museum there also.
