Trump's Holocaust Remembrance Day Message Is Distinct From Last Year's

Last year, Trump released a statement on the remembrance day that did not mention Jews.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson honors survivors and victims in a former Warsaw Ghetto, as commemorations around the world mark worldwide holocaust remembrance day.

The world marks Holocaust Remembrance Day Saturday, the anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz Nazi death camp in 1945. We will stamp out prejudice.

The statement Friday nodded to the other victims of the Nazis, but separately from its mention of the Holocaust.

Edelstein mentioned an European Union delegation to Tehran and criticized its members for failing to protest an anti-Semitic cartoon contest that took place in the country.

The statement recalled Turkey's efforts to save lives of innocent people by extending a helping hand to Jews who escaped the Nazi persecution, and said that Turkey "opened its doors to hundreds of them".

On Sunday, 28 January, the Cape Town and Holocaust and Genocide center will also be holding a commemoration ceremony, to be addressed by well-known South African Advocate, Anton Katz, who also sits on the United Nations Human Rights Council Working Group on Mercenaries.

"The sadistic brutality of the atrocities inflicted by the Nazi regime on Jews, Roma, Slavs, disabled people, political dissidents, homosexuals and others was nourished by layer upon layer of propaganda, falsifications and incitement to hatred", he stated.

"As we honour the victims of the Holocaust, we must also acknowledge the need toprevent the recurrence of anti-Semitism and all forms of racial and religious hatred and discrimination today".

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

Regretfully we are witnessing a rise of anti-Semitism related actions and speech in Europe and elsewhere that sow seeds of hate. The far-right former editor of Breitbart News Network has since been fired from his post at the White House.

Defending the statement, White House spokesperson Hope Hicks said Trump was taking into account "all of those who suffered" during the Holocaust, not just the six million Jewish people.
