“A remarkable gesture: descendants of the Nazi Regime´s perpetrators sing Israel´s national hymn HaTikvah (The Hope)”

That is what the Israeli Embassy in Germany wrote about the new music video from the March of Life Movement, which the Embassy also shared on their Facebook page. At the end of this moving video, the performers talk about their own families´ stories. “Both sides of my family were staunchly National Socialist. One of my great-grandfathers was involved in burning down the synagogue in Darmstadt. This truth shocked me. I stand by Israel, I love Israel and I do not want anything like this to ever happen again.”
Israeli´s largest news portal Ynet reported about the video in August this year (view article:   http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4843284,00.html). Ever since this article was published, the video has been reaching thousands of people on a daily basis, carrying the message that there is a new generation of Germans who stand on Israel´s side and who raise their voices publically against anti-Semitism and for Israel. Reports from other Israel News Broadcasters including Channel 10 and i24 News followed. The responses and comments are compelling. Here are two examples, “That is beautiful! Especially in such a time as this, in which anti-Semitism is getting worse, it is indescribable to see something like this! Thank you so much!” and “My eyes tear up every time I see it. My father is a Holocaust Survivor; he shared the video with me.”
