A month after hosting a delegation of evacuees at a match against Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund issued an emotional announcement in honor of the Festival of Lights


There is no doubt that the greatest support Israel has received from world football has come from teams and fans in the German league. Fans of Werder Bremen, Mainz and more waved signs after the massacre by Hamas, which supports Israel and calls for the return of the hostages, while the luxury clubs Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund sponsored delegations to their games with evacuees, bereaved families and more.

At the beginning of last month, a delegation of 14 residents of the Gaza envelope landed in Dortmund, invited by the yellow-and-black and who were the club's guests of honor at the match against Bayern. For Dortmund, this was a continuation of the fight against anti-Semitism and Holocaust remembrance, as for the past 12 years the club has been funding the departure of two groups of fans to Auschwitz and Lublin every summer, and the fans undergo workshops in which they learn about what happened in Germany during the Holocaust.
