UN marks Holocaust Day

The United Nations marked the annual International Day of Commemoration yesterday, in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, “The Holocaust was a unique and undeniable tragedy…The work of remembrance pays tribute to those who perished. But it also plays a vital role in our efforts to stem the tide of human cruelty. It keeps us vigilant for new outbreaks of anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance. And it is an essential response to those misguided individuals who claim that the Holocaust never happened, or has been exaggerated.” More
