Romanian Prime Minister Sorin Grindeanu received a delegation of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, accompanied by US Ambassador in Romania, Hans Klemm.
The main topic of discussion was the creation of a Museum of the History of Romanian Jews, a demarche to consolidate Holocaust history education. The discussion followed a first international meeting of the consultative board for the setting up of the museum held at Victoria Palace in Bucharest, on March 17.
“This project is backed by the Romanian Government as well as other institutions of the Romanian State. We want this project to become reality as soon as possible, and to this end, we will closely cooperate with the Federation of Romania’s Jewish Communities,” the prime minister said.
