It is very important that their grandchildren and great-grandchildren have carried through the years and passed to the next generations the memory of this great date. I had a meeting with the initiator of the bill Ben-Tzur and explained to him the significance of this day. He agreed to accept my amendment, according to which the Victory Day in Israel should officially be celebrated on 9 may, and 26 of Iyar on the Jewish calendar. He personally will make this amendment at the Commission in the preparation of this law to the vote».
