Yad Vashem’s

International 60th Anniversary Mission

Poland & Israel  June 11-19, 2014

Dear Friend ,

It is my distinct privilege to invite you to join us for an exceptional and exciting occasion to explore Yad Vashem in-depth, as part of our landmark International 60th Anniversary Mission. This exclusive Mission, spanning two continents, will offer a rare opportunity to experience first-hand the remarkable range of activities conducted by Yad Vashem.

Starting in Poland, Mission participants will explore Jewish life in Krakow and Warsaw before and during the Holocaust and tour Yad Vashem's compelling new Exhibition, Shoah, at Auschwitz-Birkenau together with an IDF delegation. Continuing on to Israel and our Mount of Remembrance in Jerusalem, the Mission will be ushered behind-the-scenes at Yad Vashem for revealing insights into our extraordinary resources and renowned treasures, participation in a unique 60th Anniversary Event, and special encounters with top echelon figures in Israel's Government and Defense Forces.

With Holocaust remembrance at a crucial crossroads, and as the second and third generations take up the mission to carry forward the message and legacy of the survivors, your involvement with Yad Vashem is more important than ever. The 60th Anniversary Mission is an ideal, fascinating way to express your solidarity with our goals and commitment to their achievement.

I look forward to sharing this singular experience with you and urge you to register now to ensure your place.
