Blaze Stopped 40 Meters From Yam Vashem Archives
Ynet – A large fire is raging in Jerusalem Forest Sunday, and quickly spread towards Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum.
The director-general of Yad Vashem criticized the firefighters for their slow response. “The firefighters took an hour from the moment we notified them. They arrived very late.” he said “The fire reached a distance of just 40 meters from the Yad Vashem archives. Our maintenance teams stopped it just before it could destroy our most precious treasures. I don’t know and don’t want to think what would have happened if we hadn’t stopped it.”
