Switzerland President - Samuel Schmid

adies and Gentlemen

Six weeks ago we commemorated the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The major international participation – of Holocaust survivors and heads of state – is proof that Auschwitz continues as ever to be a universal and important symbol of the Holocaust. We are reminded once again that there are no words to express the full horror of the crimes that were committed. Nevertheless, we are bound to keep talking about them and to keep their memory alive.
