Germany has signed off on a grant of 10 million euros over the next ten years to the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum.
German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle signed the agreement while visiting in Israel.
Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar represented Israel at the signing. “On behalf of the government of Israel, I express a deep appreciation to the German government for providing funding for this important purpose,” said Sa’ar. “This decision reflects the importance that the German government attaches to the subject of the Holocaust. The commemoration of the Holocaust is an endless task.”
