The presidents of Poland and Israel on Tuesday joined Holocaust survivors for the formal opening of a multimedia museum that tells the 1,000-year history of Jewish life in Poland.
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, on his first foreign trip as president, and Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski attended the open-air ceremony at the neighboring monument that honors fighters of the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
Speaking in Hebrew, Rivlin said he came as the 10th president of Israel and a son of builders of the State of Israel.
