Histadrut delegation travels to Poland to strengthen the memory of the Holocaust
As part of the Histadrut’s policy to strengthen the memory of the Holocaust among future generations, a delegation of Histadrut workers traveled to Poland last week for a five-day journey.
The trip had a dual purpose for the Histadrut. In addition to strengthening the memory of the Holocaust, it also served to raise Histadrut workers’ awareness of human rights issues that the workers of Israel may face. Throughout the delegation, members were encouraged to consider the right to be treated equally, and their duty to oppose discrimination and racism in their different work areas – specifically in work that includes representing and supporting the workers of Israel.
The delegation was led by the General Director of the Histadrut, Dudu Bezalel. It included workers from professional unions, as well as representatives from different districts and divisions of the Histadrut, including the chairpersons of Naamat.
Some of the main places the delegation visited were the Warsaw Ghetto, the extermination and concentration camps of Treblinka, Majdanek, and Auschwitz-Birkenau, and the Lopuchova Forest. The delegation held several memorial ceremonies, and Histadrut workers who were second or third generation Holocaust survivors had the opportunity to share their family members’ stories and pay tribute to the dead.
