German Chancellor Merkel says Pope must reject Holocaust denial

February 03, 2009

Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel has called upon Pope Benedict XVI to issue a clear statement of opposition to Holocaust denial, in response to the furor roused by the views of Bishop Richard Williamson.

At his public audience last Wednesday, the Holy Father said: "May the Shoah be for everyone an admonition against oblivion, negation and reductionism, because violence against a single human being is violence against all."
