Ceremony to mark International Day of Holocaust Commemoration

The Holocaust commemoration takes place every year at 1pm on 25th January (the day in which Auschwitz was liberated by Russian troops) on the esplanade in front of the Palais d'Europe building of the Council of Europe. I represented you standing in the second line facing the Secretary General and other speakers when they read their speeches.

One of the speakers, I think it was the President of Austria, said that it was only possible for the Nazis to persecute the Jews by denigrating them and removing their Human Rights and so we must always ensure that we consider immigrants and people of other cultures to be identical to ourselves and fight for their Human Rights along with our own.
