President Shimon Peres said Saturday that he thanked UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his visit to the Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland last week, praising the visit as key to fighting anti-Semitism, racism and genocide.

Peres called Ban over the weekend, saying that it was important that the young generation all over the world learn the lessons of the Holocaust."You touched me and all of Israel with your visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau," Peres told Ban, adding that he was the first acting UN chief to visit the camp.
