The evening of 6th November 2014 saw the launch of The Friends of the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II at the House of Commons. The launch supports the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in WWII, a project backed by the Israeli government, with a curatorial aim of remembering and honouring the contribution of Jewish soldiers in the Second World War.
The UK Minister for the Armed Forces, Mark Francois, along with Lord Sterling, John Whittingdale MP and the former Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Arens, were among several leading figures to address the audience of diplomats, politicians and leaders from the international Jewish community.
“It is with great pride that we launch The Friends of the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War II. We are sure that the support we have gained here tonight will continue to grow, and our hope is that others will share in commemorating the sacrifices of the brave Jewish Soldiers who served in the Second World War”, said Maryana Greenberg, President of the Friends of the Museum of the Jewish Soldier in World War Two.
