Speech by Ambassador Alexander Yakovenko at wreath laying ceremony on Holocaust Memorial Day

Today we are here, at the Soviet War Memorial, to remember one of the darkest, most tragic and shameful chapters in the history of mankind – the Holocaust. It is a powerful reminder of the perils of discrimination and intolerance, of just how catastrophic and barbaric the incitement to racial hatred can be. Today our solemn duty is to ensure that this never happen again. We remember men who were dragged from their homes, walled into ghettoes, starved and beaten, and killed by firing squads and in factories of death.
