Yad Vashem holds its first Annual Dinner in Asia E-mail

The first Yad Vashem Dinner in Asia was held at the Jewish Community Centre in Singapore on 8 December.

The event was co-chaired by Philip Ong, a local Singaporean businessman, and Searle Brajtman, Director of the English Language Desk of Yad Vashem’s International Relations Division. Over 100 guests attended this groundbreaking event, including Israel’s Ambassador to Singapore Yael Rubinstein and Consul General Yitzchak Yitzchak, as well as prominent members from the local Jewish communities and local Christian groups.

The keynote speaker was Auschwitz survivor Eva Slonim OAM from Melbourne, who movingly described her experiences during the Holocaust and stressed how her fellow inmates in the concentration camps asked her to give testimony about what happened so that the world would learn from those experiences and not allow them to happen again.
