(WEBPUBLICA) UNITED NATIONS – On January 28th the United Nations marked International Holocaust Remembrance Day. And the UN General Assembly also held a special session with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Israel’s UN Ambassador Danny Danon spoke.

 

Secretary General Guterres strongly condemned the rise of Antisemitism in the world, and stated the importance of standing up against it: “We reaffirm our resolve to fight the hatred that still plagues our world today. It is necessary more and more that we sound the alarm. Inevitably, where there is Antisemitism, no one else is safe,” Said Guterres.

 

Ambassador Danon referred to the indifference of the international community to modern Antisemitism: ”Calls for the destruction of the Jewish people continue in full force. They reveal themselves on the walls of synagogues; on the gravestones in Jewish cemeteries; on the sides of Iranian missiles. The Jewish people around the world cannot feel completely safe. They make it so that the Jewish people cannot have a single year without a case of Antisemitism. This is what happens when the world chooses apathy.”

 

“Apathy is the enemy of humanity. Apathy means allowing a UN member state to develop nuclear weapons when it clearly states its intention to destroy the Jewish state.”

 

“The Jewish people and the Jewish state will remain alive, strong and determined forever. We are embracing an era that will never see us go,” Danon said.

 

Inge Auerbacher, a survivor of Terezin camp, spoke about her experiences before the GA: “My hope, my wish, and prayer is for every child to grow up in peace without hunger and prejudice. I plead with you, world. Make good choices. The antidote to hatred is education. No more Antisemitism!”

 

After the event, the Israeli Mission to the United Nations, together with the Missions of Peru and Portugal, held an event to open an exhibition devoted to diplomats who are Righteous Among the Nations. The UN Secretary-General and the families of diplomats who were recognized as Righteous Among the Nations participated in the event. (Mission press service source)
