LOOK: Duterte tours Holocaust Museum with Sara
President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday (September 3) visited the Tad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Center in Israel as part of his four-day official visit.
The President was accompanied by his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, and several Cabinet members in his tour.
Duterte wrote the phrase, “Never again,” when he signed the guest book of the Yad Vashem at the Children’s Memorial Hall.
The Holocaust was one of the darkest moments of Israel’s history, with six million Jews slaughtered by the Germans under the rule of Adolf Hitler.
In his brief remarks while touring the Hall of Names, Duterte expressed hope that the Holocaust will not be repeated.
“I would like to say that we are one in saying that it will not happen again and my country will be the first to voice such…I said a massacre of a race just because of hate,” he said.
