Likud MK Ophir Akunis says, in the presence of Bundestag President Barbel Bas at a ceremony at the Knesset to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day, that he will not forgive the Germans for the Holocaust.

“Others may be able to forgive the Germans. I do not forget or forgive, nor will I forgive this act of pure evil, ever,” Akunis says in Hebrew, having addressed Bas previously in English.

Akunis is speaking at “Unto Every Person There is a Name,” an official annual event during which Knesset members read out the names of Holocaust victims.
