Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the Yad Vashem Center today (Sunday) to commemorate the Holocaust. During Merkel’s sixth visit to the site, Yad Vashem Chairman Danny Dayan and Yad Vashem Council Chairman Rabbi Israel Meir Lau were also present. Bennett said after the visit: “In my opinion, the most important thing in the lessons is the most obvious and simple of all: the place of the Jewish people is on its land, here in the Land of Israel.”
The Prime Minister added: “The Holocaust is not the reason for the existence of the State of Israel. The connection of the Jewish people to their land did not begin in Auschwitz. But Auschwitz, our brothers and sisters who were lost there, strengthens our determination to never be defenseless, far from their homeland.”
