New Seminars Wing Dedicated at Yad Vashem

Education Minister Gid'on Sa'ar inaugurated, Monday, a new seminars wing in the International School for Holocaust Studies at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial institution in Jerusalem. The ceremony was attended by Canadian Foreign Minister John Baird and Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau.

Minister of Education said: "We renew, reinforce and underscore our commitment to instilling memory of the Holocaust and its lessons. It is not only a debt to our fathers and mothers who were murdered because they were Jews. It is not only a national imperative. This is a great moral imperative for all peoples and their descendants for many generations."
