Gov’t to take 200 young Germans on Israel trip

The Foreign Ministry is planning to invest NIS 3 million ($770,000) in flying 200 German youths to Israel where they will meet with the president and prime minister and visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial.

The project was launched several days ago and will be, Ynet reports, one of the most expensive undertakings in public diplomacy.

The initiative coincides with 50 years of bilateral ties between Israel and Germany, but was conceived due to recent surveys that show that Israel is losing the support of the young generation in Germany, which is becoming more critical of Israel and more pro-Palestinian.
