Postcards from the Holocaust museum we visited in Jerusalem. It was a very somber place and I didn't feel like taking photos so I bought these postcards from the gift shop so that I could still scrapbook this very moving event.
Journaling reads "Our next stop was at the Yad Veshem Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. We spent a few hours there, taking in the history of the Jewish people and remembering the horrors and injustices that were done to them during World War II. It was very moving, especially seeing the room with the names of all the known people who died during the Holocaust. Row upon row of books filled with pages after page of names in a room 2 stories high...it really hit home just how many lives perished in that awful stain on our history. There was also a memorial set up for all the children who died during the Holocaust. It was a set of three lights that were reflected around the room by mirrors, making hundreds upon hundreds of lights. The room was completely dark and silent, except for a voice reading the names of the children who had died, with their country of birth and their ages. That was probably the most heart-wrenching part of the whole things. Innocent children who hadn't done anything to hurt anyone were murdered just because of who they were by birth. It was awful. Afterwards, we all just spent some time processing all that we had seen and heard and remembering those who had died."
Completed for the March Page Maps challenge - sketch #5.
The large Star of David and the title were cut out of double-sided adhesive sheets from Silhouette. I then poured embossing powder over them and heat set it to give the gold effect.
