'The Holocaust is more than just history'

“The Holocaust is part of our collective memory. It is our duty to make sure that never again may such atrocities happen. This is especially important for young people who may be tempted to see the Holocaust as just a chapter in history books.

But, we know that the Holocaust is more than just history,” the newly-elected PACE President said at a Council of Europe ceremony to mark the international day of commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust.
