Leumi Employees Participate in the "March of the Living", in Poland
On Holocaust Memorial Day, which took place on May 2nd, 2011, a delegation from Leumi participated in the "March of the Living" ceremony in Poland.
This 80-member delegation was led by the Leumi Board of Directors Chairman, Mr. David Brodet and the Senior Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Zeev Nahari.
Participation in the Leumi "March of the Living" delegation was the commencement of a complex emotional journey, beginning at the "Yad Vashem" museum in Jerusalem, and ending with the journey to Poland. During this mission to Poland, Leumi's delegation visited the Jewish ghettos of Warsaw and Krakow, the concentration camps of Treblinka, Majdanek, Auschwitz, Birkenau and the "labor camp" of Pwasuf (Plaszów).
Leumi, which has aligned itself with the Zionist movement since its inception, has contributed extensively to the establishment of the State of Israel, and views its' employees participation in the "March of the Living" ceremony as a national mission. Likewise today, Leumi continues its mission of contributing to the development of the State of Israel and to the enhancement of Israeli society, and will continue doing so in the future.
