UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday paid special tribute to the women who suffered in the Holocaust in a statement released in honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"Mothers and daughters, grandmothers, sisters and aunts, they saw their lives irrevocably changed, their families separated and their traditions shattered.  Yet, despite appalling acts of discrimination, deprivation and cruelty, they consistently found ways to fight back against their persecutors," Ban stated.

"They joined the resistance, rescued those in peril, smuggled food into ghettos and made wrenching sacrifices to keep their children alive.  Their courage continues to inspire.  On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, let us honor these women and their legacy.  Let us pledge to create a world where such atrocities can never be repeated," he added.
