An exhibit opening for No Child's Play – Remembrance and Beyond took place in the Visitors' Lobby. This travelling exhibit, produced by Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem, opens a window into the world of children during the Shoah.  It focuses on toys, games, artwork, diaries and poems that highlight some of the personal stories of the children and provide a glimpse into their lives during the Holocaust. The exhibition tells the story of survival -- the struggle of these children to hold on to life.
