ALBRIGHT VISITS YAD VASHEM IN JERUSALEM AND LAYS WREATH
United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright bows her head September 10 while flanked by two United States Marines after laying a wreath in the "Hall of Remembrances" at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, honouring the six-million Jews who perished at the hands of the Nazis during World War II. Albright wept as prayers were sung by a Rabbi which begins with the words"Merciful God". Czech-born Albright, who was raised as a Catholic and is now Episcopalian, said she learned for the first time this year that her family was Jewish. At least two of her grandparents were killed in the Holocaust.
