Trump's Holocaust Remembrance Day Statement Mentioned Jews, Unlike Last Year

We must never lose sight of our collective responsibility to stand against antisemitism and prejudice in all its forms and to never allow intolerance and hate to take root in our communities.

Citing Neo-Nazis and white supremacy groups as among the main purveyors of extreme hatred, the United Nations chief said that too often, vile views are moving from the margins to the mainstream of societies and politics. It instead read, "It is with a heavy heart and somber mind that we remember and honor the victims, survivors, heroes of the Holocaust".

On Saturday, she took to Twitter again to send a message honoring Holocaust Remembrance Day. "And too often, vile views are moving from the margins to the mainstream of societies and politics".

Some of those migrants have brought their own brand of anti-Semitism with them.

In Germany, many Jews have reported feeling threatened by anti-Semitism - both from native far-right groups and from Arabs - and Jewish institutions across the country have increased security.

Meanwhile, fierce street fighting continued between the government forces and other military units allied with the STC in Aden's neighborhoods.

"Today, we commemorate the over six million victims of the Holocaust". The concentration camp housed Jews, prisoners of war, homosexuals and other dissidents who worked as slave labourers. "One should never forget how hard it is to leave behind everything just to survive".

In a message marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day, President Trump called the Holocaust the "systematic persecution and brutal murder of six million Jewish people" - a marked departure from past year, when his message omitted any reference to Jews.

Speaking during her weekly podcast, Merkel said it is "inconceivable and shameful that no Jewish establishment may exist without police protection, whether it is a school, a kindergarten or a synagogue".
