JERUSALEM, Israel – Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel is in Israel this week for her farewell visit to the Jewish State.
On Sunday, Merkel laid a wreath at Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial and urged the world to fight against anti-Semitism.
“Every visit to Yad Vashem touches me at the core,” she said. “The crimes against the Jewish people that are documented here are a perpetuate reminder of the responsibility we Germans bear and a warning.”
