Holocaust Remembrance Day Marked

Holocaust Remembrance Day Marked

The anti-migrant, anti-Muslim AfD party won seats in the German parliament for the first time previous year, while in Austria the nationalist, anti-migrant Freedom Party is in the government. "But 2018 also represents the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which grew out of the horrors of the Holocaust", continued Juncker.

It also hoped that humanity could take lessons from the Holocaust, "which stemmed from phenomena such as anti-Semitism, racism and extremism". "We must stand together against the normalization of hate". "Remembering the atrocities of the Holocaust, this darkest chapter of modern European history, is essential for understanding the value of having a European Union today". We must remain vigilant to protect the fundamental rights and inherent dignity of every human being.

Kurz has repeatedly harked back to Austria's past as the 80th anniversary approaches of the country's annexation by Nazi Germany, urging citizens not to forget "the sad and shameful days of March 1938", when Nazi troops marched in to a rapturous welcome.

"The lyrics of one song ran: "'Step on the gas, old Germanics, we can make it to seven million'". "It is our responsibility to continue the fight against all forms of anti-Semitism with all determination!"

In a message marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, President Trump called the Holocaust the "systematic persecution and brutal murder of six million Jewish people" - a marked departure from a year ago, when his message omitted any reference to Jews.

"In their death camps and under their inhuman rule, the Nazis also enslaved and killed millions of Slavs, Roma, gays, people with disabilities, priests and religious leaders, and others who courageously opposed their brutal regime", the message said.

"On this occasion, it reminds us that we can never, we can never, be indifferent to the face of evil", Tillerson said. "We will bear witness, and we will act".
