President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva joined Jewish leaders to mark the 62nd anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camps, saying the Holocaust must never be denied and urging the world to prevent it from ever happening again. "In the 21st century we cannot accept the denial of the Holocaust as a historical fact," Silva told some 500 people at the Sao Paulo Jewish Congregation's synagogue on Friday. "Nor can we accept those who deny that six million Jews were massacred," "Each time we pay homage to the victims of the Holocaust, we strengthen those forces that will prevent that same horror from repeating itself," he said after praising the United Nation's General Assembly for last week's approval of a resolution condemning the denial of the Holocaust. Silva's remarks came at a ceremony held to commemorate the Jan. 27, 1945, liberation and to mark the second International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
