NPR's Linda Gradstein reports on Pope John Paul II's emotional visit to Yad Vashem, Israel's memorial of the Holocaust. The visit was aimed at sealing a reconciliation between Jews and Catholics that has divided the two religions for millennia. The meeting at Yad Vashem went off better than a later interfaith meeting with Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders. That meeting broke up into an argument about sovereignty over Jerusalem.
