Bush: World must go on condemning anti-Semitism

In a statement issued by the White House for the International Holocaust Memorial Day, US President George W. Bush called upon the world to go on condemning anti-Semitism. "I was deeply moved by my recent visit to Yad Vashem," said Bush on Sunday. "Sixty-three years after the liberation of Auschwitz, we must continue to educate ourselves about the lessons of the Holocaust, and honor those whose lives were taken as a result of a totalitarian ideology that embraced a national policy of violent hatred, bigotry, and extermination."  "Today provides a sobering reminder that evil exists and a call that when we find evil we must resist it. "May God bless the memory of the victims of the Holocaust. And may we never forget." The International Holocaust Memorial Day is marked on the day of the liberation of Auschwitz. In a ceremony near the rubble of the gas chambers at the camp, a representative of Polish President Lech Kaczynski said the world should remember those who saved the lives of others during the six years of World War II, including Poles who risked their lives to save Jews.
