The events of the Holocaust were "a source of deep shame" for Germans, German Chancellor Angela Merkel declared on a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial on Monday. "[Germans] are grateful that the staff at the museum included the stories of the righteous among the nations, even though they were too few. Nevertheless," she told Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev and others who accompanied her on her first visit to the memorial, "this fact challenges us to learn from history." Shalev, who guided Merkel through the Holocaust History Museum, also accompanied her as she laid a wreath in a moving ceremony at the Hall of Remembrance. Merkel then proceeded to the Children's Memorial, after which she spoke briefly in German.
