Chamber of the Holocaust

“Chamber of the Holocaust”  was Israel’s first Holocaust museum, created on Mount Zion  in the 1950’s.

Although today most visit the National Holocaust Museum “Yad Vashem, the “Chamber of the Holocaust” has special value in showing Jewish Orthodox attitude to the subject, and the national attitude towards the Holocaust in its early years.




Chamber of the Holocaust

Chamber of the Holocaust ( Hebrew: מרתף השואה‎, Martef HaShoa, lit. “Cellar of the Catastrophe”) is a small Holocaust museum located on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. It was Israel’s first Holocaust museum. The memorial was inaugurated on 30 December 1949 by the Ministry of Religion and its Director-General, Rabbi Dr. Samuel Zangvil Kahane, whose purview included Mount Zion.
