  • Martyrs Forest (Ya'ar Hakedoshim)

    Martyrs Forest in the Jerusalem hills is KKL JNF and B'nai B'rith International's memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. The six million trees planted here serve as eternal green memorial candles for the six million Jews who were murdered. Here you will find the Scrolls of Fire monument, Martyrs Cave and the Anne Frank Memorial.
  • Visit the Anne Frank Memorial

    On Holocaust Remembrance Day, the public is invited to visit Martyrs' Forest, particularly the very moving Anne Frank Memorial Site, which was built by KKL-JNF about a year ago on the initiative and with the support of KKL-JNF Holland.
  • Children's Memorial in Ruhama Forest

    This speical forest grove in the western Negev's Ruhama Forest was planted in 2016 by Russian-speaking Holocaust survivors, in memory of the one and a half million Jewish children who were murdered during the Holocaust.
