Statement was made today at the Kadoorie Synagogue before a female delegation from the Park Avenue Synagogue in New York

The cartoon had originated protests by ALPI, the Israeli embassy in Portugal and the Jewish communities of Oporto and Lisbon

"In this museum, we like to see the teenagers asking how it was possible for the Jews to be victims of this tragedy", said the President of the Oporto Jewish Community

The state opening ceremony will take place in Warsaw Ghetto Square at Yad Vashem.

The cartoon offends the 6 million Jews who died in the Holocaust and also the survivors of this terrible extermination and their descendants.

The Mayor of Lisbon, Carlos Moedas, was also present at the event – in the same way as in the previous year.
