Gantz: 'We Will Never Again Be Helpless Against Our Enemies'


IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz spoke at a memorial ceremony in Berlin Friday for the Jews who passed through the infamous Platform 17, as part of a working visit to Germany on behalf of the German Chief of Staff. Platform 17 was one of Berlin's major deportation sites for Jews sent to concentration camps from 1941 to 1945. The ceremony was held in the presence of prominent German Army official, Marcus Kniepp; the current Israeli Ambassador to Berlin, Yaakov Hadas-Handelman; and embassy staff and German leaders in Berlin.
