Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Israel's official Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem, shortly after arriving in Israel on Tuesday afternoon.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi described Israel's Holocaust remembrance center Yad Vashem as a "poignant reminder of unspeakable evil," following his tour of the museum on Tuesday. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu joined Modi on his tour, guided by Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev.

They visited the Hall of Names, participated in a memorial Ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance and toured the Children's Memorial. At the conclusion of his visit, Modi wrote in the Yad Vashem Guest Book:

"I am deeply moved by my visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial museum. It is as much a poignant reminder of the unspeakable evil inflicted generations ago as it is a symbol of the endurance and fortitude of the Jewish people. As we deal with conflict, intolerance, hatred and terror in our time, Yad Vashem serves as a mirror to society around the world. May we not forget the injustices of the past and its devastating toll on humanity and remembering the past. We may empower our children to make compassionate, just and righteous choices for their future."
