President Shimon Peres addressed the annual Holocaust Rememberance Day ceremony at Yad Vashem on Sunday night with somber words aimed at reminding the world of the Holocaust's importance and relevance.

"The Holocaust will not be lost in the depths of history," Peres told the crowd gathered at Yad Vashem, "it is right here with us, burning and tangible."

Peres stressed the point that the painful emotions and lost identity of millions of murdered Jews is a process that Jews everywhere are still coming to terms with today.

"When I hear the four words: 'Let my people go,' I sense again and again that the exit march from the house of slavery, a march that is continued by us, is not yet finished," Peres said drawing on a biblical reference, "and it is forbidden to be finished."
