A tombstone/memorial was placed next to the cemetery lake with the names of the immediate fatal victims of those horrible events.

Before the Second World War there were 9 million Jews on the old continent, today only 1 million and they continue to leave, especially after October 7th.

The victims were identified as Yitzchak Zeiger, a 57-year-old father and grandfather, and Uria Hartum, a 16-year-old high-schooler.

The expectation that the impact of the Oct. 7 attacks and a surge in antisemitism would prompt a shift in the way Jewish groups operate was probably misplaced.

In 2024, the ceremony will take place on March 20th.

Netanyahu congratulated the opposition MKs who supported the resolution.
