Zelensky commemorates Holocaust victims: Only victory of life stops evil

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky issued a statement commemorating the Jewish victims of the Holocaust on Tuesday, Israel's Holocaust Remembrance Day.

"Today we commemorate millions of Jews killed during the Holocaust," Zelensky wrote on Twitter. "And we remember: It is only the victory of life that stops evil. Wherever hatred rears its head, life must prevail -- by law and force. We value everyone who preserves the memory of the Holocaust and protects life."

Zelensky is Jewish, and shared last March that his great-grandparents had been killed by the Nazis.
