World leaders, survivors gather in Jerusalem for Fifth World Holocaust Forum (YNet)

Jerusalem today is the scene of a historic event for the Jewish Nation. World leaders from dozens of countries have arrived for ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration and death camp. During the Holocaust millions of Jews were systematically exterminated by the German Nazis and their collaborators. It was a dark time in human history that destroyed a huge amount of world Jewry. It was a time when few Jews could imagine our return to Israel with Jerusalem as our eternal unified capital. Now, many years later, Jerusalem is proud to host this event with the participation of leaders from around the world. Today’s ceremony takes place at Yad Vashem, Israel’s national memorial in Jerusalem for the Holocaust.
