Worldwide Friends of Yad Vashem

On behalf of all of us at Yad Vashem, I wish to express our shock and deep identification with the people of France at this very difficult time.

We extend our sincerest condolences to the families and dear ones of the murdered and express our hopes and prayers for the recovery of those wounded in Paris.

We are joined together in our commitment to the universal and Jewish values of human rights and dignity.

We painfully realize that 70 years after the conclusion of the Shoah, evil remains a powerful force in the world.

This evil can and must be fought, vigorously and persistently, by the advocates of freedom and justice, united by shared values and determination.
