The Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of the People's Republic of China, H.E. Mr. Zhang Dejiang, visited Yad Vashem on Tuesday, 20 September 2016. The Chairman toured the Holocaust History Museum, participated in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, visited the Children's Memorial and signed the Yad Vashem Guest Book.
At the end of his visit, the Chairman met with Chinese teachers currently participating in an international educational seminar at the International School for Holocaust Studies. "Like you, I learned so much from the museum tour I just experienced," Chairman Zhang told the participants.
"We can never forget the crimes committed against the Jewish people by Nazi Germany... Activities you are engaging yourselves in here are therefore of great significance, as they enable you to spread the message of peace and justice. It is a very rare opportunity in your lifetime, which I hope all of you as young Chinese scholars and educators will cherish."
