support for the formation of the state of Israel

This monument commemorates Guatemala's efforts to assist the state of Israel with its formation and recognition. Guatemala was one of the first countries to recognize Israel on May 19, 1948 and one of the first countries to open an embassy in Jerusalem (later moved to Tel Aviv). Guatemala's representative to the United Nations and later Ambassador to Israel, Jorge Garcia Granados, wrote a book about his experiences titled "The birth of Israel: The drama as I saw it".
