Holocaust survivor to represent Israel at the UN


Quoted from: Israel National News, written by: Nitsan Keidar

Holocaust Survivor, Martha Weiss, was specifically selected to represent Israel at the UN in honour of International Holocaust Day

In an unprecedented move, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon has relinquished his seat and invited Holocaust survivor Martha Weiss to represent Israel in his stead.

“I was very moved to receive the ambassador’s invitation,” Weiss said. “I never imagined as a child in the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp that someday I would represent the State of Israel at the UN.”

The keynote speech will be delivered by Beate Klarsfeld, the Nazi hunter who devoted years to the study of the Holocaust and to prosecuting Nazi war criminals.
