White House nails Holocaust Remembrance statement on just its second try

The entrance to the German concentration camp of Auschwitz

Since 1945 there have been several other attempted genocides across the world - including Rwanda, Cambodia and Bosnia - and these are also commemorated on Holocaust Memorial Day.

The President said "every generation must learn" from the holocaust in order to prevent "new horrors" from happening.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki reminded the participants that a bad crime was committed right there.

The first lady tweeted that she experienced a "powerful and moving tour", using the hashtag #WeRemember and including photographs of her lighting a candle at the Prayer Wall.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel issued a warning about rising anti-Semitism on Saturday during remarks for International Holocaust Remembrance Day.


Labour added that in Corbyn's message in the Holocaust Educational Trust service book, Corbyn wrote: "As we remember the victims of evil, we salute the power of humanity and solidarity embodied in these words by our Jewish brothers and sisters which still resonate once the hate-filled banalities of their tormentors are long forgotten". "The Western alliance which emerged from World War Two has committed itself to ensuring the security of all, that this would never happen again".

Our Nation is indebted to the Holocaust's survivors.

That's because-and you can be forgiven for forgetting this in a year of non-stop scandals-its statement on International Holocaust Remembrance Day last year did not mention Jews.

Holocaust Memorial Day is held annually on January 27, the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau. "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 statement said. "I'm gutted to think there are Kiwis who think this is OK", said Dame Susan. "My heart is with you, and we remember".
