The United Nations started off the international Holocaust Remembrance Day on Saturday by stating “The Holocaust began with words – and in the era of the internet & social media the power of propaganda is more devastating than ever.”

US President Donald Trump said on his account that “we mourn and grieve the murder of 6 million innocent Jewish men, women and children, and the millions of others who perished in the evil Nazi Genocide.” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised “’’never again’ as we remember the millions of Jews….” US Vice President Mike Pence shared on Twitter how he and his wife Karen paid their respects “to honor the 6 million Jewish martyrs” at the Israel Holocaust museum Yad Veshem in Jerusalem on January 23 during a state visit to Israel. British Prime Minister Theresa May pledged to "do everything in my power to ensure we never forget..."

Israeli actress Gal Gadot who is widely known for playing the role of super heroine Wonder Woman warned that it is vital to honor those who were Holocaust victims and added her hope that “may we never forget.”
