Address by President of the State of Israel, H.E. Mr. Moshe Katsav

State Opening Ceremony of Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day 2005

Millions of Jews the world over and many Righteous Among the Nations identify today with the memory of the Holocaust victims, and the suffering of Holocaust survivors. We will do this in every generation – the wounds of the Jewish people will never heal.

60 years have passed since the slaughter of 6 million of our people, since the end of the harshest war the world has ever known.
