Dana Kursh

The future generation should seek inspiration from the souls of those who lost their lives to save many Jews during the Holocaust, said Dana Kursh, Consul General of Israel to South India, who had lost her grandmother in the genocide.

On Thursday, Consulate General of Israel to South India launched ‘Leadership Beyond Duty’ initiative at Bangalore International Center – a year-long project to host a series of events sharing the stories of those who took the brave decision to save Jews during the Holocaust.

“This initiative is especially meaningful to me, being an Israeli, a diplomat, and a granddaughter to the Holocaust survivors Rachel Dudashek and Yisachar Dudashek Starovesky, who lost their entire family in the Holocaust,” said Dana Kursh.

The exhibition, which will be open for the public from May 3 to 9, will showcase the story of diplomats from different countries.

The Consulate partnered with academic, civil society, religious, and other diplomatic missions for the event.
