Gene Simmons and family visit Yad Vashem

Earlier this year, Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed and their son Nick toured Yad Vashem during a visit to Israel. They visited the Holocaust History Museum and the Archives, where they learned more about Gene's family's Holocaust experience. They were guided by Martine Cohen, a Yad Vashem Guide.

Here is the clip which aired recently on "Gene Simmons: the Family Jewels" on A&E:


Gene Simmons was born in Haifa, Israel in 1949 and is the only child of his mother, a Holocaust survivor from Hungary. He is the co-founder and bassist/vocalist of the band Kiss.
