 Jerusalem is the largest city in Israel and a holy city for people of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian faiths.  It has been a source of much debate in the painful Israeli-Palestinian conflict; the Palestinian National Authority desire East Jerusalem to be the capital of a future Palestinian state, but Israel have annexed it since 1980.  There are many cultural centres in the city, along with religious sites.  This includes Yad Vashem, which is a complex museum and memorial centre to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
