On this International Holocaust Remembrance Day, I join people all over the world in commemorating a crime unparalleled in human history, a crime in which six million Jews as well as millions of other innocent victims, Roma, political prisoners, prisoners of war, disabled people, homosexuals, were murdered in Nazi death camps. 

This year, International Holocaust Remembrance Day has a special resonance since it coincides with the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination Camp.

À l'occasion de cette Journée internationale de commémoration de l'Holocauste, je me joins à tous ceux qui, dans le monde entier, commémorent un crime sans précédent dans l'histoire de l'humanité, puisque six millions de Juifs ainsi que des millions d'autres victimes innocentes, des Roms, des prisonniers politiques, des prisonniers de guerre, des personnes handicapées et des homosexuels ont été tués dans les camps de la mort nazis.

Such attacks should not be allowed to undermine the political process.
