PM Ponta: Mankind must never forget this troubling page of history represented by the Holocaust

Prime Minister Victor Ponta said in a post on Tuesday on his personal Facebook page that mankind must never forget the troubling page of history represented by the Holocaust, and respect for diversity, tolerance and freedom are the values that can prevent the repeating of such dark episodes.

‘January 27 is a moment of special significance; it marks the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 70 years since the liberation of the Nazi camp in Auschwitz-Birkenau. In 2012, I have visited the present day museum in Poland, to show respect for the memory of innocent lives lost over that tragic period; the impression was shattering; I will carry it inside for my whole life,’ Ponta declared in his public message on this commemoration day.

He stressed ‘mankind must never forget this troubling page of history.’

“Respect for diversity, tolerance and freedom are the values that can prevent the repeating of such dark episodes of destiny, and they must never be infringed. Our fight today against extremism is very real, and we will only win it through solidarity and understanding, through fighting anti-Semitism, xenophobia and discrimination, through our wish to build a better, more unite society,’ the prime minister’s message pointed out.
