Knesset Members visiting Krakow, Poland for Holocaust Remembrance Day were met by anti-Zionist “Wanted” posters for Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Opposition leader Tzipi Livni.

The four Israeli legislators wanted to tear off the posters from the bulletin boards but instead informed security officials. The posters were displayed near the hotel where the legislators are staying and offered 10,000 Euro ($14,000) for information on the senior leaders. The posters read, “Wanted for War Crimes.”

One of the MKs said he is sure their presence is what prompted the signs, and a complaint was filed with Polish authorities.

The Knesset delegation was in Poland for the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp on Wednesday, which also is marked by the United Nations as Holocaust Remembrance Day.

President Shimon Peres spoke at the Bundestag German parliament in Hebrew to mark the occasion, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was scheduled to deliver an address Wednesday afternoon.
