Director of Jasenovac Memorial Site Nataša Jovičić received the letter from the Embassy of Israel in Croatia which was sent by the President of the State of Isreal after his visit to Jasenovac Memorial Site.

Dear Mrs. Jovicic,

Having returned to Jerusalem, I want to express my sincere appreciation for the impressive ceremony at the Jasenovac Memorial Site. It was one of the most moving experiences of my visit to Croatia, and it has left an indelible mark on me.

In this day when the horrors of World War II are being denied, you are to be congratulated on your efforts to safeguard and perpetuate the memory of this dark chapter of history. At the Jasenovac Museum, and at the Memorial Site, those who have perished in this place have been given a voice, and I wish you every success with the museum's development.

Sincerely yours,

Shimon Peres
