A group of disabled youths from Munster, West Germany, planted trees Wednesday at a Jewish National Fund center in the Jerusalem hills.

According to a spokesman, they wanted to express by their actions a desire for deeper understanding between the German and Jewish people.

The visitors first toured the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial before the tree-planting session.
