Australia Deputy Secretary, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade - Nick Warner

I speak on behalf of the Government and the people of Australia in recognising the enormous significance of Yad Vashem to Israel, to Jewish people around the world and, indeed, to all of us, wherever we come from.

The museum is a testament to the millions of men, women and children who lost their lives in the Holocaust and a solemn reminder of the devastating consequences of anti-Semitism, racial hatred and persecution.

Our sense of loss and sorrow is not only for the many who might have been with us tday, but also for the vitality and the talents that were lost to humanity as a whole - and forever.
