Yad Vashem will be honored in France and Spain this week for promoting Holocaust remembrance worldwide, Israel's Holocaust Martyr and Heroes Remembrance Authority announced Tuesday. The Chairman of the world-renowned Holocaust center, Avner Shalev, will receive the Légion d'Honneur from French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Thursday in a special ceremony at the Elysee Palace, while Yad Vashem will receive the prestigious international Prince of Asturias Award for Concord in Oviedo, Spain on Friday in the presence of the Spanish Royal Family. In addition to expressing a recognition of the importance of Yad Vashem's work around the world, these prestigious international awards also express a deep understanding that the memory of the Shoah - the murder of the Jews that took place in the center of Europe - has profound significance and meaning for the coexistence of the family of nations, today, and throughout the ages," Shalev said. More than one million people visit Yad Vashem each year.
