The Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem is on US President Donald Trump's travel agenda for his upcoming visit in Israel next week. But initial reports said that Trump would only dedicate 15 minutes to the visit.

Some, including Israeli officials, have said that such a short visit was impossible and that an hour and a half is the bare minimum to respectably tour the vast institution, which also serves as a museum and an education center to present the world with the tragedy suffered by the Jewish people and others under Nazi Germany.
We sent out our reporter to see how much of the 45-acre complex Trump could potentially see in the allotted time period.
