Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva on Friday said the world must remember the Holocaust with "indignation" to keep from repeating the tragedy, at a gathering to mark the first International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
"The shadow of this tragedy extends itself over all of mankind, which must commit itself to never forget one of the most tragic episodes in history," Silva said.
The Brazilian president made his remarks at a ceremony at the Sao Paulo Jewish Congregation, held to commemorate the 56th anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camps on Jan. 27, 1945 and to mark the first International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
