  • [01] Greece commemorates Int'l Holocaust Memorial Day

    (ANA-MPA) -- Alternate Foreign Minister Dimitris Droutsas, in a statement on the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz concentration camp and the 10th anniversary of the Stockholm Declaration on the Holocaust, reiterated on Wednesday that "today, 65 years ago, Allied forces entered the death camp of Auschwitz, putting an end to an unprecedented disgrace, whose signs remain visible even today and mar humanity.

    "Millions of men and women did not survive to see that day. Others, however, succeeded, and many of them are still with us, reminding us as witnesses of the extremities which human existence can reach," the Greek minister he said, adding: "Greece, honoring the fallen, has established with a unanimous decision by Parliament, January 27 as a day of remembrance for the victims of Holocaust."

    The Alternate Minister also stressed that WWII victor Greece "is proud to be one of the countries that were first to sign this monumental document, which indeed was signed on its behalf, as then foreign minister, by George Papandreou, the country's current prime minister."
