Ambassador Danon alongside the ambassadors of (r-l) Lithuania, Albania, and Romania

A delegation of United Nations ambassadors and other senior diplomats took time to learn about the Auschwitz concentration camp — and its impact on the Jewish People — at an event held Sunday evening with representatives of the American Jewish community at the Jewish Heritage Museum in New York.

At the opening of the event, Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, spoke alongside the leaders of the American Zionist Movement and March of the Living organizations. Among the attendees were ambassadors from Albania, Latvia, Belgium, Romania and Finland.


“At a time when anti-Semitism rears its head, we can never allow the world to forget the horrors of history that came from hatred of Jews,” Ambassador Danon said.

The ambassador also spoke about the dozens of UN ambassadors who visited Poland as part of an initiative he has led in recent years and the importance of this project for the preservation of Holocaust remembrance in the international community.
