Unhappy International Holocaust Remembrance Day 2017

The United Nations will mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day Friday morning in New York in a memorial ceremony in which the main speech will be given by Holocaust survivor Noah Klieger, who is also a featured writer for Yedioth Ahronoth.
Klieger, who survived Auschwitz, met at Israel’s Yad Vashem Holocaust museum with a delegation of UN ambassadors visiting Israel during which Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon took the initiative to bring him to the ceremony.

“To stand here as an Israeli in front of all the countries of the world is a huge victory for me, for victims and for the survivors who are still alive,” said Klieger on Thursday, who will be accompanied in New York by his grandson, Yuval who serves in the IDF today.

“We need to take advantage of every opportunity to memorialize the Holocaust and to teach it to the younger generation throughout the world so that we don’t forget.”

Dannon also said Thursday that he was proud of the fact that Klieger was addressing the world organization. “His story is one of courage and the rebirth of the Jewish people. The UN must take the central role in the struggle against anti-Semitism and in remembering the Holocaust,” Danon said.

“Members of the UN must make their voices be loudly and clearly heard against the hatred and not allow the UN to be a platform of anti-Semitism

The Holocaust against the Jewish people also known as the Ha-Shoah in Hebrew is commemorated today. Others were also slaughtered, Slavic Orthodox Serbs were considered only half aryan and not good enough for the Nazis. Disabled people were hunted down on Hitlers orders, Gypsies and homosexuals aswell were among the millions gassed to death in the gas chambers. See below the YAD VASHEM website for more info.
