Five leading German companies — Daimler, Deutsche Bahn, Volkswagen, Deutsche Bank and the football club Borussia Dortmund — have pledged € 5 million to Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem.
Ruth Ur, the director of the German section of Yad Vashem, Israel's official Holocaust memorial, tells DW why a fresh perspective on remembrance work is more important than ever — even during the coronavirus crisis.
Daimler, Deutsche Bahn, Deutsche Bank, Volkswagen and Borussia Dortmund have each pledged large financial donations to the center. The money will be invested in a new space to house the museum's growing archive.
