Holocaust museum opens in Palestinian village

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A museum devoted to the Holocaust was dedicated in a Palestinian village.

The museum opened Tuesday, Holocaust Memorial Day, in Na’alin, which is better known for weekly protests of Israel’s security fence that divides the village in two.

It is located in an apartment near where an 11-year-old Palestinian boy was killed last year during a fence protest, Ynet reported. The museum features pictures and educational material in Arabic.

"If leaders on both sides know and remember what Hitler did, maybe we’ll have peace," Ibrahim Amira, a Na’alin resident and a leader of the anti-fence protests, told Ynet.
