The event was very respectful and emotional. No matter where we are in the world, it is our duty to tell the story of the 6 million Jews that were killed in the Holocaust and of the survivors, to remember and never forget!

The Ambassador concluded by saying that no one should witness an atrocity like the holocaust.
