On Holocaust day, Netanyahu says its lessons guide him

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during the opening ceremony of Holocaust Memorial Day at Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Jerusalem April 23, 2017.

"Iran and the Islamic state want to destroy us, and a hatred for Jews is being directed towards the Jewish state today", he said at a ceremony in Jerusalem's Yad Vashem memorial. Visitors will have a chance to meet with experts, who will seek out art work and documents not generally on display for the general public. The museum notes that every president since the museum's opening in 1993 has participated in the ceremony. At the ceremony, scheduled to take place at the Chagall State Hall at 11 a.m., Rivlin, Netanyahu, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, Supreme Court Deputy Chief Justice‎ Elyakim Rubinstein‎, Chief Rabbis Yitzhak Yosef and David Lau, and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat will read out names of Jews who perished.

John Emerson will discuss how Germany is addressing its past in light of the current political climate in Europe, according to Jill Brown, communications and outreach coordinator for the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, which is organizing the commemoration.

In his video remarks on Sunday night, Trump spoke at length about the bravery and sacrifice of the Jewish people who were killed and the families who suffered during the Holocaust.

He added: "As the survivors grow older, frailer, and fewer, we are making a mark to say: 'We remember, we will honour, we will not forget, and we will do all in our power to prevent a recurrence'". However, we must ensure that these budgets indeed reach the survivors. "Therefore, I have made a decision to personally head a ministerial team that will include the ministers of Finance, Health, Social Welfare and Social Services, Construction and Housing, and Justice".
