Gantz said: "In a cold and clear day, one can't understand or bridge the gap between the surrounding quiet and the horror that took place around the camp's sheds."


Gantz added that "The State of Israel is the safeguard against the recurrence of this horror, and the IDF is the wall around the national home, the haven for the Jewish people.


"I'm proud to head Israel's military as well as this delegation, which seeks humbly, while mourning the dead and honoring the survivors, to take responsibility of learning from the past and securing the future."
