Billionaire Mitch Goldhar visited the “Holocaust and Rebirth” Museum in Haifa
Billionaire Mitch Goldhar, owner of the Maccabi Tel Aviv soccer team, arrived Sunday evening (29.4) a few hours before his team played against the Hapoel Haifa team, at Kiryat Hahesed of the Yad Ezer L’Haver organization, for a visit to “The New Holocaust” museum which was inaugurated recently. Goldhar arrived accompanied by his assistant Jack Englidis and a large entourage of friends and family. He visited the museum about three years ago in its early stages of construction, and promised to come and visit it again, and this is what he did tonight.
Goldhar toured the facilities of Kiryat HaHesed, and received a comprehensive overview of the organization from Yigal Danino, the legal advisor of the association, due to the fact that the founder and CEO of the organization, Mr. Shimon Sabag, is on a personal visit to the Auschwitz extermination camp in Poland. Goldhar, met with Holocaust survivors, residents of the Yad Ezer L’Haver “Warm House for Holocaust Survivors”, and did not miss a thorough tour of the new Holocaust and Rebirth Museum. He also stated that he himself is a member of a family of Holocaust survivors. His grandmother, grandfather and all his family perished in the Holocaust. The only survivor of the Nazis was his mother. Goldhar said, “I stand here in front of you and I am very moved. This is a great and special day for me to be here and hear what you have undergone. I share these difficult moments with my family as well. I know that I cannot assist you at the moment, but I will be a partner and I will try to contribute as much as possible to help this amazing and exciting place. I am thrilled to be here and witness the long-standing activities of Mr. Shimon Sabag, towards the well-being of Holocaust survivors. There are not many people with as much goodwill, generosity and magnanimity within them. Shimon Sabag is a precious man not only to you but to many in this country. You should be honored that Shimon commemorates Holocaust survivors alive, as this is very important, I was very excited to visit this museum here tonight. ”
