White House Remembers To Mention Jews In Holocaust Remembrance Day Message, Also Cites Gay Victims

Politico reports:

The White House on Friday recognized International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a message that specifically mentioned the 6 million Jews killed by the Nazis, a year after coming under a barrage of criticism for omitting any specific mention of Jews when marking the day in January 2017.

“Tomorrow marks the 73rd anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi death and concentration camp in Poland,” the White House said in a statement Friday.

“We take this opportunity to recall the Nazis’ systematic persecution and brutal murder of six million Jewish people. In their death camps and under their inhuman rule, the Nazis also enslaved and killed millions of Slavs, Roma, gays, people with disabilities, priests and religious leaders, and others who courageously opposed their brutal regime.”
