Yad Vashem Chairman to step down

The chairman of Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum and Memorial said Sunday he will be stepping down after 27 years.

Avner Shalev, 81, said in a letter to Yad Vashem employees that he made the decision to leave the position after nearly three decades following “thorough self-examination.”

He said he was stepping down by the end of year and gave no further details on his reasons for leaving.
