The Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem is visited regularly not only by Israelis and Jewish tourists but also by non-Jewish heads of state and other distinguished guests from all over the world.

In a media interview, Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau stressed the role which this institution has, not only as a memory of the past but also as a warning for the future. Referring to the recent increase in anti-Semitic incidents in Europe he called upon foreign governments to learn the lesson of the Holocaust and take tougher measures to punish those guilty of attacking Jews and desecrating Jewish cemeteries.
