Statement by Senator John Kerry In Observance of Holocaust Remembrance Day
May 5, 2005
"Holocaust Remembrance Day is a time to honor and remember the millions of innocent lives lost in one of the darkest periods in all of world history. It should also be a reaffirmation of our vow to never forget the evil that comes from bigotry and intolerance. We have a responsibility to stand up and affirm human dignity everywhere around the globe where it is in peril. We can never forget or ignore what happened during the Holocaust, and we must never allow it to be repeated-any time or anywhere."
