During his visit to Yad Vashem, the Prime Minister of Greece, H. E. Mr. Alexis Tsipras, toured the Holocaust History Museum, participated in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, visited the Children's Memorial and signed the Yad Vashem Guest Book.
At the conclusion of his visit, the Prime Minister called the Holocaust "a crucial milestone in modern history [...] the blackest mark on modern history for all of humanity. We must never forget the Holocaust, and never allow anyone, anywhere around the globe, to repeat what happened. It is our duty to resist the ideologies of hatred, xenophobia and racism."
In the Yad Vashem Guest Book, the Prime Minister wrote:
"We will never forget the faces of millions [of] people, women, men and children, murdered with cruelty and barbarism. Because human suffering anywhere concerns us all everywhere."
