Poland - President - Aleksander Kwaśniewski

Ladies and Gentlemen! I am extremely honored and truly moved that I can – along with representatives of so many nations take part in this extraordinary event here at Yad Vashem. The new Museum makes an indelible impression on all visitors, and is a forceful reminder of the enormity of the tragedy that was the Holocaust. It also inspires us to think of ways in which to keep the memory of those inhuman times alive. I feel especially bound to do so as the proud holder of an honorary doctorate conferred by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
