Education Minister Shai Piron will represent Israel in Poland at a ceremony marking the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising on Friday.

Piron is expected to speak at the ceremony, which will take place in the presence of Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, Warsaw Mayor Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, other Polish government officials as well as representatives of the European Parliament.
