Additionally, all Museum visitors on Yom HaShoah will receive a special daffodil sticker, designed by Izabela Gabrielson.

The shape and color of the daffodils represent the Yellow stars that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. Yellow is the color of remembrance. Daffodils represent our poignant hope for the future. They are resilient and return with a burst of color each Spring, signifying hope, renewal and beauty. The daffodils also honor those who survived the Holocaust and went on to build new lives after this dark and difficult period. For additional information about the artist, Izabela Gabrielson, please visit www.sklepikartstudio.com.
