On, Friday, October 26, 2007, Yad Vashem received the prestigious Prince of Asturias Award for Concord from Spain's Crown Prince Felipe. Yad Vashem's nomination was proposed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and supported by eminent public figures from around the world. The award ceremony took place at the Campoamor Theatre in Oviedo, Spain, in the presence of the Spanish Royal Family. Holocaust survivors and Righteous Among the Nations accompanied Avner Shalev on the stage to accept the Award. They were enthusiastically received by the audience, who then stood for a moment of silence, to show their respect to the memory of those who perished during the Holocaust.
