The Holocaust! Do you remember?

2013 International Holocaust Remembrance Day
Sunday marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the date chosen in 2005 to coincide with the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945 and used to reinforce the phrase Never Again!

The question and the concern, however, is that reality may be much different than the rhetoric of the politicians!

For example how many Jews around the world even knew that this day of remembrance was taking place? To be honest I didn't know until I read about it after the fact.

Then there was the rhetoric of some around the world who took a slightly different tone, such as the words of Silvio Berlusconi who "...praised Benito Mussolini for `'having done good" despite the Fascist dictator's anti-Jewish laws. Berlusconi also defended Mussolini for allying himself with Hitler, saying he likely reasoned that it would be better to be on the winning side..." (Source)
