Romania commemorated its national Holocaust day on Monday with ceremonies marking 65 years since the beginning of deportations of hundreds of thousands of Jews to death camps in the occupied Soviet Union. President Traian Basescu and other officials took part in the inauguration of a national monument commemorating Holocaust victims in central Bucharest. He reminded participants that Romania only recently began to confront its role in the Holocaust after decades of denial. "The Holocaust Memorial is a monument which confirms Romania's decision to recover its real history," said Basescu. "It is a difficult process which means changing mentalities and the capacity to accept reality after 50-60 years when history was falsified," Basescu said.
