Pope marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

Catholic World News - January 27, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI called attention to Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, recalling the “unprecedented cruelty” of the Nazi extermination campaign and praying during his regular weekly audience that “such tragedies never happen again.” Speaking on the anniversary of the day in 1945 when the Auschwitz concentration camp was liberated, the Holy Father said that “the tragedy of the Shoah has struck the Jewish people,” and the “countless victims of a blind racial and religious hatred” should today bear witness to the need to respect every human person.
