“Dear sisters and brothers presidents

Vice-consul Carl Lutz saved more than 60'000 jews in 1944/5 in Budapest. 

It is our great pleasure to inform about the inauguration of a memorial for Carl Lutz in KKL's 'Switzerland forest' near Tiberias, this coming Thursday, at 14 h. The memorial has been built on the initiative of AKL Zürich, in a joint project of the four Swiss Bnai Brith lodges and the KKL Switzerland.


The inauguration ceremony will be given by Bnai Brith Switzerland, the KKL, and the Swiss Embassy in Israel. 

This site near the Sea of Galilee, which offers a splendid view over the Kinnereth, is situated on the “shvil Israel” and the “circum-kinneret” and will therefore attract many tourists and locals alike.


We are happy, proud and grateful to honour Carl Lutz, Swiss vice-consul in Budapest in 1944, who realized one of the most outstanding rescue operations during the holocaust, inspiring the equally wonderful and valuable operation done by Mr. Wallenberg.

You can find some more information
