I believe it would be good if Pope Francis, on his forthcoming visit to Israel, could visit Deir Yassin as well as Yad Vashem, as suggested by Bernard Kilroy in his letter (The Tablet, 12 April). It would not diminish the importance of the visit to the Holocaust museum; instead it would show the Holy Father’s concern for any persons affected by atrocities committed against them.
