Herzog: Ahmadinejad should meet with survivors

Tourism Minister Isaac Herzog said Monday at a special Knesset session on the Holocaust conference that opened earlier Monday in Teheran that if Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were invited to visit the crematoriums, take part in the March of the Living, and visit all the museums and sites worldwide dedicated to honoring the memory of the Jews who were slaughtered in the Holocaust, he might understand that denying the Holocaust was a mistake. "He should meet the survivors who have numbers tattooed on their wrists," Herzog told the Knesset. Herzog exhorted the Jewish people to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive from generation to generation. "All over the world, the survivors' words, their writings, should be passed on from father to son and in every classroom," he urged.
