is the largest city in Israel
and a holy city for people of the Jewish
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.
