Israeli president: Le Pen's Holocaust denial 'disturbing'

The video, which can be seen in this article from Huffpost, was made to honor those who lost their lives in the Holocaust as well as to express America's support of Israel.

"Six million Jews, two-thirds of the Jews in Europe, murdered by the Nazi genocide".

This morning, Israel will come to a standstill as sirens wail for two minutes.

Six Holocaust survivors lit torches at the memorial on Sunday night in memory of the six million Jews massacred by the Nazis during World War II.

A wreath laying ceremony at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial followed, with Israeli leaders and Holocaust survivors in attendance. Other ceremonies, prayers and musical performances took place in schools, community centres and army bases around the country.

"We feel very strongly that with the disappearance of the last Holocaust survivors, probably in the following decade or so, that we will be faced with growing signs of denial and forgetting of this phenomenon", Carmon told JNS.org ahead of the educational program's inauguration at Yom HaShoah's official closing ceremony Monday.

This year, education ministers from 12 countries are scheduled to meet in Israel to discuss how to carry on with remembrance of the Holocaust, or Shoah in Hebrew, once all the survivors have died.

Netanyahu said Israel has transformed itself into a strong nation with one of the "strongest defensive forces in the world", and he warned that "those that seek to destroy us will put themselves in danger of destruction".

The central theme of this year's commemorations at Yad Vashem was "Restoring Their Identities: The Fate of the Individual During the Holocaust".

"According to this approach, the justification for the existence of the State of Israel is the prevention of the next Holocaust".

The chair is one of thousands of artifacts housed in the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's new conservation and research center, which opened Monday on the annual memorial day for the 6 million Jews killed by Nazi Germany during World War II.

While the White House's latest Holocaust remembrance statement is a step in the right direction, these allegations of plagiarism are troubling to say the least.

The state of Israel was created in 1948 in the wake of the Holocaust as the national home for the Jewish people. May humanity never forget what has happened, and may we all band together to ensure that nothing of the like ever happens again.
