Statement on YouTube Video Filmed at Yad V'Shem

29 April 2014 By New Israel Fund

The New Israel Fund and its employees have no connection to the atrocious performance at Yad V'Shem posted to YouTube last week, and we condemn and deplore that performance.

The website which embedded the video and alleged an NIF connection to the performance is wrong. The Zochrot organization is not and never has been an NIF grantee and the camera operators are not employed by an NIF grantee.

We are seeking legal remedies against the website, which not for the first time has alleged out-and-out defamatory falsehoods about the New Israel Fund.
